Ted Thomas’s interest in land preservation grew from his lifelong passion for hiking. A native of Elizabeth, New Jersey, he attended summer camp in Vermont where he developed a love for the outdoors:“It’s the view when you get to the top,” he says of the enjoyment he receives. “I’d rather be hiking on a trail than walking down a street. There’s so much more natural beauty.” The 89-year-old, along with his wife, Penny, hikes out west every summer, frequently joined by their four adult children.
