Only 99 Christmas trees left! It's hard to believe we started with 600!

Thank you to everyone who purchased one of our trees and made us a part of your Christmas tradition. You've helped spread holiday cheer to local wildlife in need through your support.

Our "Person of the week" this week is Community Engagement Coordinator, Natalie Hassan. Natalie has been at the Howell Nature Center for more than 20 years.

Natalie is the best friend of many Moms as she goes above and beyond for them to make sure which of our camp programs is the right fit for their child.

She coordinates our scholarship assistance requests and works diligently and compassionately to help families in need in providing a camp experience that they would otherwise not be able to afford.

She also orders all of our Welcome Center merchandise, configures registration for all HNC events, assists in organizing some of our major fundraisers and the list goes on and on! (she even waters our plants when some of us are away on vacation without asking!)

If you hear someone saying in the Welcome Center, “I love this place!” … It’s usually Natalie talking to a parent with an occasional snorting laugh and an continuous aura of kindness and gratitude that makes her one of the most endearing people you will ever meet.
