2014 In Memoriam: Jerry Stage -

We were all saddened by the passing of Jerry Stage on January 23, 2014, after a protracted battle with cancer.  Jerry was a long time supporter, Officer, Board of Director member, and Stewardship chair for many years, as well as a lover of nature and all things outdoors.  He particularly loved speaking about birds, bees and wildflowers.  Jerry was one of the founding members of the land trust and a man of many interests.  He was an avid runner and a member of the Shenipsit Striders.  Hew completed the Boston Marathon and at the age of 60 completed three 50 mile races within the span of 7 weeks.  Jerry, originally from California, earned a PhD in Entomology at Berkley and was a nationally recognized expert on bees.  He planned and built many of the trails on land trust properties.   Friends of Jerry's gathered at the McCann Family Farm parking area on Sunday, February 2, 2014 for a remembrance hike where you can hike the Jerry Stage Trail as well.   Photos
