This Conservation Area was generously donated by the late David D. Lewis in 2012.  It is located a short distance northeast of the City of Branson.  Bull Creek runs through the southern portion of the area for a length of approximately one-half mile.  Habitat communities on the area are diverse with a mix of upland and bottomland forest, as well as woodlands, savannas, grasslands, and glades. 

A 40 acre portion of this area, on the east side, is within the Village of Merriam Woods.
