Hansen Nature Center

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 the building of 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.

In Memory of Henry M. Hansen

Beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, passed peacefully October 25, 2014 at the age of 94 at his home in Henrietta. He was loved by all who had the pleasure of knowing him for his big heart, kind nature and contagious smile. He was an outdoors-man, philanthropist and family man.

The Hansen Nature Center was the result of a generous donation to Tinker Nature Park by Henry Hansen.
