Professional Development
The Shaw Professional Landscaping Series

The Shaw Nature Reserve has partnered with several companies and organizations in St. Louis to host professional training workshops throughout the year. Many workshops focus on stormwater best management practices and how to plan, build and maintain for best results. Other workshops have focused on rain gardening, weed ordinances, public green space and native landscape design.
