Naturalist Notes & Wildlife Referrals
The Nature Center is neither licensed nor staffed to accept injured or orphaned animals; however, there are a variety of sources that may be of help to you.
The best source of information is the Michigan Department of Natural Resources website. The website lists all of the licensed rehabilitators throughout Michigan, organized by county, and details the type of animals with which the rehabilitators work.To contact the Michigan Department of Natural Resources click here.
