Alexander von Humboldt Discussion: March 12

Please join the Friends of the Buffalo State College Maud Gordon Holmes Arboretum for a discussion on the adventure-filled life of the first ecologist, Alexander von Humboldt, on Thursday, March 12, at 6:30 p.m. in Technology Building 160. During his lifetime, von Humboldt was one of the most famous people in the world, known for his scientific brilliance, his inexhaustible energy, and his renowned charm.

The discussion will be informed by the exceptional von Humboldt biography and New York Times best seller, The Invention of Nature, by Andrea Wulf. This timely book has helped inspire worldwide celebrations this past year for Von Humboldt’s 250th birthday. Thursday’s program will also include a brief video and lecture on von Humboldt by Stephen Vermette, Buffalo State professor of geography and von Humboldt expert, followed by a discussion facilitated by Dr. Vermette and Robert Warren, associate professor of biology.

All are welcome. Refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact Susan McCartney, director of the Small Business Development Center.
