THE HERMON
SLADE FOUNDATION

Believing that “…if there is a way better than another, it is the way of nature”, Mr Hermon Slade sought to encourage the pursuit of excellence in scientific research, particularly on topics which are designed to improve the ways in which individuals and communities interact with their natural environments.

“If there is a way better
than another, it is the
way of nature.”

– Hermon Slade
