My goal is to help more and more people experience the emotional well-being that comes from spending time outdoors. Our project will help young people build a relationship with nature that they can turn to for the rest of their life. That’s some powerful stuff!

TIM MURRAY, LEAD MENTOR

Walnut Creek, California

Born in Nevada and raised in Northern California, Tim was hooked on the outdoors after his first camping trip at the age of two. Most of Tim’s fly fishing experience started quite a bit later, as he began exploring many of California’s storied rivers and streams as a teenager (and to this day, still has a soft spot for a good day at Hat Creek PH2). Tim, his wife, two children and their labrador retriever, Mazey, currently live in Walnut Creek, CA, where they enjoy hiking, fishing and eating lots of pizza. Tim joined the Mayfly Project in 2020, and looks forward to helping foster children develop a positive relationship with nature that will be a strong force for good in their lives.
