"Conference and Retreat Facilities

Located in Howell, Michigan, just minutes off I-96 (exit 137), the Howell Conference & Nature Center offers you and your group a complete year-round facility for retreats and conferences. We are a unique center, with 270 acres, a year-round staff, and over 75 environmental education programs.

As you turn down the narrow driveway, you will be awestruck by the beauty of the woods, the rolling terrain and the fields filled with wildflowers. As you draw closer to your lodge, enjoy the serenity of the oak woods and keep watch for the varied wildlife on the property. You will feel as if you have been transformed to a northern Michigan lake as you stand in your lodge and enjoy the beautiful views.

The Howell Conference and Nature Center is the perfect place for retreats, scout, school and church groups, summer camps, conference and meetings, and just about any occasion.

Wildwings Lodge offers a picturesque view from it's large community meeting room through the window wall. The meeting room also has a fireplace. Carpeted throughout, the facility has dorm style sleeping for 40 people, a small kitchen and showers. With a view of the pines, the large exterior deck wraps around the front of the building.
