This Month at Shaw Nature Reserve
Summer Adventures

The summer is a great time to enjoy a journey through the shady paths of the River Trail. The whole family can enjoy exploring under the canopy of huge paw paw (Asimina triloba) leaves during the Nature Navigators: Evening Gravel Bar Adventure. Explore the river bottoms by using your GPS unit and the coordinates in our downloadable GPS brochure to locate the geocaches around the Reserve.

You don’t have to travel far to explore. Hike the short shady loop around Pinetum Lake or kayak in the lake during a Quickstart Kayaking class. Close by are the Sense of Wonder Woodland and the Nature Explore Classroom; perfect spots for little ones to discover.

Wildlife is stirring as the sun rises which makes it a great time to visit the Reserve. Come when it’s cooler in the early morning at the Shaw Photography Series: Sunrise Photography. No matter which trail, program or event you choose, there are new adventures around every bend!
