At the Howell Conference & Nature Center, we have many goals and dreams for our center and are constantly looking ahead to make sure we are the best facility for your family, group, or school. We would like to share the upcoming attractions with you. We have been working very hard with the help of many other generous people to make these dreams become a reality. We are very proud of what is to come here at the Howell Conference & Nature Center! Please stay tuned!


Coming this August, the HNC will be opening Alexandria’s Naturescape, a hands-on and interactive play area for children, age 2 -10. Our goal behind the new play area is to reconnect children with nature and to UNPLUG!At our NatureScape, children will be able to: SPLASH, DIG, CLIMB, EXPLORE, AND DISCOVER! Parents must supervise their children when playing in the Naturescape.





Coming this July, we will be adding a new entrance to our Wild Wonders Wildlife Park. Inside, there will be two colorful paneled walls with information about the park and our animals and dropboxes to leave a donation.







Coming this June, we will be introducing our new Barbara Bishop Raptor Facility! The new Raptor Facility will include 4 flight pens for our permanently injured, educational raptors. This will be replacing our current “Hawk Row” and will be located adjacent to the DTE Raptor Education Center
