Jep & Paddy Wade with Jim Cox at the Wade Tract, March 2008

In memory of Jeptha H. Wade

We were deeply saddened to hear of the recent passing of one the most important figures in the 50-year history of Tall Timbers. Mr. Jeptha H. Wade passed away on Friday, August 8th, in Beford, MA. In 1979, Jep and his wife Paddy granted a perpetual conservation easement to Tall Timbers on one of the last tracts of old-growth longleaf forest remaining anywhere in the world.
