"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.

"We get lip service how wonderful Shaw Nature Reserve is, how it's a jewel for Franklin County," Shaw director John Behrer said.

Still, Behrer is concerned. The preserve has worked for 35 years to rehabilitate 2,400 acres. The land had been filled with invasive plants and stripped of native wildlife, but now resembles Missouri's original landscape again. Bobcats, prairie grasses, sparrows and butterflies have returned, Behrer said.
Behrer doesn't know how the concrete plant would change that.
