Shaw Nature Reserve

The Nature Explore Classroom (NEC) welcomes children and families to Shaw Nature Reserve.

The NEC is conveniently located just beyond the Visitor Center in the shade of historic pines and close to Pinetum Lake. Through the back gate of the NEC, visitors can explore the Sense of Wonder Woodland, which includes a pollinator house, storybook walk, and lake overlook. The combination of these two spaces provides a perfect place for families with young children to connect with nature and Shaw Nature Reserve.
