"Early June is really nice on the glades, especially when the coneflowers are blooming," said John Behrer, director of the Nature Reserve.
...
"Blooming could be a bit later this year because winter slowed things down," Behrer said.
...
"We're trying to restore and maintain the natural landscapes that existed historically," Behrer said.

"Fire was their tool, their bulldozer, to manage the landscape," Behrer said. "Tall-grass prairie wouldn't have existed in Missouri if the Native Americans had not set fires. If we stopped burning or mowing, it would all go back to woodlands, and we would lose a lot of diversity."
Shaw's other primary mission is education and it provides a variety of programs for both adults and children, with the Nature Reserve serving as an outdoor classroom.
"We could restore Shaw to the nth degree," Behrer said, "but if we don't use it to change how people think about the natural world, we haven't accomplished much."
...
"That area down to the Meramec is more like the Ozarks that people generally think of - it's more rugged than the upper part of the reserve, which is rolling prairie similar to northern Missouri," Behrer said.
...
"The prairies are beautiful when it's hot in July and August, but I also like it out here in winter," Behrer said.

The cabin was on property south of the Meramec River on a part of the Reserve that is not open to the public, said John Behrer, of Shaw Nature Reserve.
"In the 1980s the cabin was used by the Reserve for overnight education programs mainly for schoolchildren," he said.
"The site had poor access for emergency vehicles and was not in the core area of the Reserve that contains the system of service roads and trails along with the restored natural communities that are so valuable for education activities.
"The decision was made in the 1990 master plan to develop an overnight education center on the north side of the river that provided good access to all of the above mentioned items.The Dana Brown Center was created and opened in 2003."
Although the Dana Brown Center is made up of historic log and timber frame structures, the reserve decided not to use this cabin for the new project because it didn't "fit the bill" for what was needed for Dana Brown, said Behrer.
