Our Wildlife Clinic is at capacity. We cannot accept any adult patients at this time. For all other injured or orphaned wildlife, you MUST get prior approval by phone before bringing them to the Howell Nature Center. Call our Wildlife Helpline at 517-548-5530.  Additional licensed rehabilitators listed by county can be found at:

Our moderately challenging outdoor course winds through 230 acres of wooded nature trails and access roads. Dogs and strollers are welcome on the Little Critter Walk only.


All proceeds benefit the Howell Nature Center Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education programs, including the 4,000+ injured and orphaned animals helped each year. Thank you for your support!
