2. Shaw Nature Reserve on Wikipedia. Operating as an extension for Missouri Botanical Garden, it was originally known as Shaw Arboretum. The nature reserve was founded in 1925, due to St. Louis pollution and to grow flowers that would not survive the city air. The grounds would expand five times from 1926 to 1977. Many historic homes, several species of plants and walking trails are found in the reserve. (Submitted on November 24, 2021, by Jason Voigt of Glen Carbon, Illinois.)
