The Shaw Series

Shaw Series logoThe Shaw Series hosts informal events that bring people together to share experience and insight around 21st century issues such as community landscape planning and storm water management. Themes vary from municipal planning to public perceptions of native landscapes, developing successful landscape specifications, maintenance plans and more. All events require advanced registration. The Shaw Series is coordinated by the Missouri Botanical Garden’s EarthWays Center and Shaw Nature Reserve staff.

Registration for these seminars and tours will occur on this page the month before the event. Continuing Education Units are pre-approved through LACES – ASLA.
