Due to the growing popularity of our attractions and the resulting maintenance costs, the Howell Nature Center requests a donation upon admission. General public visitors are asked to make a donation and receive a Daily Nature Pass to identify them as day-use visitors with access to the Wild Wonders Wildlife Park, Nature Zone, Alexandria’s Nature scape, the Treehouse and hiking trails.

Are you a frequent visitor? Please consider purchasing an Annual Nature Pass for $45!

Valid for one year from date of purchase, this option was created for our frequent families and pays for itself in less than three visits for a family of four or more!  A pass-card will be issued upon purchase.  Present that card in the Welcome Center at each visit to receive Day Passes.  Good for immediate family only: up to two adults and any children under 18.


If you believe you have found an injured or orphaned wild animal, please call 517-548-5530 during our operating hours:

9 a – 5 p
Saturday & Sunday
9 a – 4 p
If you have taken in an injured animal outside of these hours, keep it warm in a quiet place away from people and pets until you can reach us.  Leave us a brief message with your name and phone number.  Another available resource is the DNR’s website, www.michigandnr.com/dlr, which contains a list of the State’s licensed wildlife rehabilitators organized by county.  Please note we do not take in bats, skunks, starlings, pigeons, or raccoons.  Thanks so much for caring about animals.
