Additional information

Tucked into the folds of the soft rolling hills of north central Texas, situated beneath the Lewisville Dam, the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA) occupies a unique ecological position in the landscape of North America. It is here where the northwestern-most extent of the bottomland forests stretch fingers into the southern end of the tallgrass prairie of the Midwest; where the Elm Fork of the Trinity River winds its way out of the sandy uplands of the dry Cross Timbers into the deep, rich soils of the Blackland prairies; where agricultural lands intergrate with ranching and a rapidly growing urban expanse. Experience the beauty of LLELA by kayaking on the Beaver Pond, hiking along the 12 miles of trails, or listening to the calls of the 280 species of resident and migratory birds found on the property.
