This Month at Shaw Nature Reserve
Woodland Adventures

Enjoy the bounty from the trees this October at Shaw Nature Reserve. As the trees are displaying their beautiful fall colors they are also producing some of the fruits and nuts that we all enjoy this time of year such as persimmons and walnuts, to name a few. Learn more about these trees plus get an up close view in the Canopy Climb. Celebrate Native Plant School’s 10th anniversary by strolling around the Whitmire Wildflower Garden, viewing demonstrations and enjoying light refreshments, music and more.

October is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your family or school group. A short hike from the Visitor Center will take you to the new children’s area called the Sense of Wonder Woodland. On the first Sunday in October, bring your costumed children to play, take a wagon ride, have their face painted, decorate a pumpkin and more during the Sense of Wonder Woodland Adventure.

During the weekends we invite you to sit back and relax on a Wilderness Wagon Ride (weather permitting). 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!
