We are honored to know you.
"Ken Slater has been a vital part of the development of the Linwood Nature Preserve from its beginning and truly deserves the Hall County Green Alliance Volunteer of the Year Award. They should name it the “Workhorse” award in his honor. I’ve witnessed Ken’s careful planning, skills and hard labor on projects such as the observation decks, bridges and information kiosks. These amenities will be enjoyed by our citizens for years to come. Ken has been a pleasure to work with and I am honored to know him."

"Ken Slater is the Redbud Project's "Man of the Years" --yes, years because he has been working diligently for years. There is no way I can begin to imagine how many hours, how much blood, sweat and tears Ken has produced on the Linwood site. Without him, we would be years behind the progress we are right now. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Ken. Your service is SO appreciated."
"Do you know what it means to be "counted on"? Ken Slater is a person we could always count on to contribute ideas, physical labor, supportive advice, hospitality, community outreach expertise, and important visionary concepts to the Redbud Project. The Linwood Nature Preserve grew with each shovelful of dirt, piece of lumber, and significant plant or shrub. Ken's bodily effort, intellect, and incredible perseverance shaped the Redbud Project's successful completion of the preserve. He leaves a legacy of dedication and admiration for a volunteer who made a difference: he could always be counted on!"
