This Month at Shaw Nature Reserve
Celebrate Fall This October

Celebrate the splendor of nature this fall as the trees are displaying their beautiful fall colors. Climb up high in the Canopy Climb to view the red, yellow, and orange treetops for miles. Learn more about the trees you see here and where the largest and most impressive ones are during Trees of Shaw Nature Reserve. Don’t forget that the Wilderness Wagon rides are happening weekends in October and are a great way to rest between hikes.

Take in the scenic fall foliage and enjoy the crisp air at Wednesday Walkers or bring the whole family out to Shaw Family Adventures: Colorful Crops. As you learn about nature’s way of preparing for winter you will also enjoy a stroll past our historic buildings and through the wetland trail lush with the yellows of goldenrod and the purples of the asters. Learn more about our historic buildings at Inside Look at Shaw Nature Reserve: History Hike.

Stop in at the Bascom House on the weekends to enjoy a refreshing drink and view the photography display. Whether you choose to participate in one of the many activities at Shaw Nature Reserve or prefer to explore on your own, October is a spectacular month to do it!
