2021-12-16 elk plate


Michigan began issuing specialty licence plates in April 2001 to raise money for several state-supported causes. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the reintroduction of elk into Michigan, this wildlife habitat plate highlights the need to protect Michigan's non-game wildlife and habitat.

Since December 2017, Michigan's wildlife habitat license plate has featured an elk to mark the 2018 celebration of 100 years of elk in our state.

If you’re interested in getting the elk plate before it’s gone, you have until the end of the month. You can buy the wildlife habitat license plate through the Secretary of State for $35, with $25 of that fee going to the Nongame Fish and Wildlife Trust Fund

Fundraising plates can only be used on passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans, and motor homes. Motorcycles and trailers are not eligible for these plates.

Order your fundraising plate online. It's easy and convenient. Fundraising plates also can be ordered by mail or at a Secretary of State branch office. Your plate should arrive by mail within two-to-three weeks, but allow up to 30 days before contacting the department.

To purchase a plate by mail, complete and print the Wildlife Habitat License Plate Order FormCheck personalized plate availability using CARS e-Services.

Beginning in January 2022, the plate will feature the Kirtland’s warbler to celebrate the recovery of this unique bird
