FORAY: James A Reed Memorial Wildlife Area

The James A. Reed Memorial Wildlife Area is located in Jackson County, south of Highway 50 near Lee's Summit. Land donations in 1952 plus additional purchases by the Missouri Department of Conservation have brought the area to its present 3,084 acres. Development of the area and construction of lakes began in 1957. Since then, over 252 acres of water have been impounded to form 12 lakes, ranging in size from one to 42 acres. Woodlands, native grass plantings, shrub plantings, and crop fields are managed to provide year-round food for wildlife. Giant Canada geese nest and winter at the Reed Area.
