The Sestercentennial of Alexander von Humboldt

For all nature lovers, natural philosophers, and curious minds who want to know why hundreds of thousands from around the world celebrated the centennial of Alexander von Humboldt’s birth on September 14, 1869, from Adelaide to Argentina, from San Francisco to St. Petersburg, with 8000 people pouring out into the streets in Cleveland, Ohio!

We  hope many of you will come to the Secrest Center and the Arboretum grounds for a day of science and the senses. Join us at 6:30pm for dramatic presentation in the John Streeter Garden Amphitheater, followed by refreshments and cast meet-and-greet in the Jack & Deb Miller Pavilion.
