The 20-acre Ladell Brothers Outdoor Environmental Center is located on the campus of North Florida Community College in Madison, Florida. It has recently been named as a site for the Great Florida Birding Trail. Three loop trails, collectively over one and one-half miles in length, begin and end at the picnic area. The picnic area includes three picnic stations, each equipped with a barbecue grill, table and trash can. There is also a large rain shelter, bench seats for groups of up to 70 and directional signs. Low areas, streams and the lake are bridged with boardwalks and platforms. Habitats, animals and plants may be observed by walking the loop trail system at the Center. The Ladell Brothers Outdoor Environmental Center is home to 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.
