Shaw Nature Reserve is launching an effort to inspire hikers to learn more about the wonders of our natural environment in our home state. Join us on June 12 for a hiking blitz where weโ€™ll explore MOre of MO (Missouri) at Shaw Nature Reserve, one of few locations in the St. Louis area to be home to such a wide variety of native habitats. Sign up for guided hikes focused on aquatics, tallgrass prairie, oak-hickory woodlands, dolomite glades, adding native plants to your home garden, family-friendly hikes, and more! Hike sessions will begin at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m. Register for a hike in one session or all three sessions! Registration required for each guided hike below. Additional day-of logistics will be sent to participants in an email.

Shaw Nature Reserve's environmental education and native plant horticulture programs are supported by the Missouri Department of Conservation.
