Nature Center History

In 1994, Henry Hansen made possible the purchase of a log cabin building which became the Hansen Nature Center. In 1998, he provided funds for an addition which more than doubled the Nature Center’s size.  The nature center features displays on the natural history of New York and offers classes year round.   The Hansen Nature Center is open Tues.-Sat.,9AM to 4:00PM.  Admission is free.
