The 20-acre Ladell Brothers Outdoor Environmental Center is located on the campus of North Florida Community College, in the city of Madison. The nature center was developed to preserve the homes of as many species of plants and animals as possible. Habitat diversity includes a black gum-red maple swamp, marsh area, a 4-acre pond, spring fed stream, deciduous woods, pine woods, campus grasslands, and a planted field. Over 200 species of organisms... plants from violets to hickory trees... and animals from the grey fox to plant mites have been sighted or identified. Habitats, animals, and plants may be observed by walking the loop trail system at the Center. The Center consists of three different trails of varying length and difficulty. The Ladell Brothers Outdoor Environmental Center is site # 1 in the West section of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. For more information, please see
