The Fred Berry Conservation Education Center (FBCEC) on Crooked Creek is one of four Arkansas Game and Fish Conservation Education Centers. The 421 Ozark acres that comprise FBCEC lie in a 2.75 mile bend of Crooked Creek just above Kelley's access. The property, a former dairy farm, is now the site of a joint conservation education project between the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. A generous donation by retired Yellville-Summit school-teacher and counselor, Fred Berry, set the project in motion in 1999. Donations from Berry, and others, provided the land, education building, pavilion and other improvements. The center was opened and dedicated on June 17, 2005.
