Native Plant School is a year-round series of classes taught by the horticulture staff at Shaw Nature Reserve and covers various aspects of native landscaping. Join us in 2021 for Zoom webinars. Native Plant School webinars are supported by the Missouri Department of Conservation and the St. Louis Wild Ones Chapter

Do you have too much lawn? Are you sick of cutting all the grass? Doug Tallamy states that there are over 40 million acres of lawn, more than all of the U.S. National Parks combined. Our children need a place to play ball, our pets need room to romp but what about that extra lawn that nobody uses. It’s a good time to get serious about converting that turf to prairie. Come learn how to create a natural-style landscape with high diversity and low maintenance.
