The City of Humboldt is named after Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), a German naturalist and scientist, whose worldwide explorations were significant and influenced the work of Charles Darwin. But, did you know that Alexander never actually travelled to Humboldt?!  It’s time to show him around and we need YOUR help!
