 The Howell Nature Center is  proud to present Livingston County’s first zip tour, Glacier Valley Eco Zip Tour.  Named for the geological and ecological features that are highlighted in this three-hour adventure. The tour consists of seven different zip lines spanning a half-mile midair ride.  Each zip line offers a unique experience through a beautiful and diverse landscape providing life long memories.  The tour begins with check-in at our Welcome Center and a saftey and equipment orientation with our professionally-trained guides.  We hope to see you in the trees!

Watch Colin experience the Zip Line for the first time with our amazing staff!
