Andrea Wulf presents on The Invention of Nature: Alexander van Humboldt’s New World on Wednesday, November 9 • 2pm 


Vividly bringing the story of the visionary naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt to life, Andrea Wulf will take us on a fantastic voyage in his footsteps and explore how his ideas went on to revolutionize science, conservation and preservation, nature writing, politics, art, and the theory of evolution. She will reintroduce us to this lost hero of science and forgotten father of environmentalism, and show us why understanding his vision of the world has become more necessary today than ever before. 

This lecture is presented in partnership with the Ambler Theater and will be held at their location at 108 East Butler Pike, Ambler, PA.
