Here at the Howell Nature Center, we are all one family! Our intent is to foster relationships and create a real sense of belonging, to be a part of something fun and amazing, and to partner with the community in helping families grow together and connect with nature.

We strive to offer our community a unique setting where people, nature and wildlife flourish together in harmony. With 230 rich acres of rolling hills and trails, lush gardens and multiple high adventure courses all nestled alongside beautiful Pleasant Lake, Howell Nature Center attracts nature and adventure lovers from far and wide.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on community generosity to not only provide support for Howell Nature Center as a whole, but to expand our education, wildlife and camp programs so that all children can experience the wonders of nature, and all wildlife that come to our doors have the best chance at being released back to the wild. We welcome you to become a member of the Howell Nature Center – a place to HEAL, GROW and BE WILD!
