Missouri Botanical Garden’s Shaw Nature Reserve

85 Years of Natural Wonders

Only thirty-five miles from St. Louis, the Shaw Nature Reserve is consistently ranked a top natural attraction in the state of Missouri. Founded in 1925 as a response to the coal pollution then choking plant life in the region, the Reserve has a mission to "inspire stewardship of our environment through education, restoration and protection of natural habitats, and public enjoyment of the natural world." This book captures the history and natural beauty of the Shaw Nature Reserve from its founding to the present day.
