This Month at Shaw Nature Reserve
Explore Nature with your Family Summer is upon us and there’s a lot to see at Shaw Nature Reserve. Start in the Nature Explore Classroom and Sense of Wonder Woodland. These two adjoining areas are a short walk from the Visitor Center and offer shade, a place to play and you can dip your toe in the water while crossing the tree-mendous bridge. Bring your little ones out to explore and hike during Tykes Trek.

Stroll along Pinetum Lake and look for bullfrogs and red eared sliders or weave your way through the bamboo maze before heading to the Whitmire Wildflower Garden. The rustic gazebo in the wildflower garden is the perfect spot to practice dragonfly and damselfly identification. Other great ways to explore include learning navigation skills during Nature Navigators: Geocaching or viewing nature from a different horizon during a Canopy Climb. For adults wanting to learn more about our native flora, Wildflower Identification and Ecology is a helpful class.

If you plan to catch part of the sunset remember there are restrooms available behind the Bascom House for your convenience.
