Branan Field Wildlife and Environmental Area
Enjoy wildlife viewing and hiking along more than three miles of trails through flatwoods and sandhills.
Gopher tortoises, eastern bluebirds and Bachman’s sparrows are just a few of the native Florida species found here.
Mature pine flatwoods have been restored and are maintained by prescribed burning.
Branan Field was used as timberland and grazing land prior to being purchased as part of a gopher tortoise mitigation project.
Branan Field WEA is located about 13 miles southwest of Jacksonville, not far from Jennings State Forest WMA.
