The Bray Area was donated to the Missouri Department of Conservation in 1995 by Mrs. Marguerite Bray in memory of her husband William “Bill” Bray and their two sons.  The purpose of the donation was to give the local community an area for nature education and recreation.

The 132 acre area consists of upland forest, an early successional field, a spring fed stream and pond, and a seasonal stream.  The forest contains primarily a mix of oaks and hickory, limestone glades and cliffs and sandstone glades.

A diversity of plants and animal habitats offer many educational opportunities for all ages.
