The Humboldt River with Pam Walker

History The Humboldt River with Pam Walker

In 1845, John C. Fremont christened this river the Humboldt River in honor of the acclaimed naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt. But did you ever wonder what this river may have been called previous to that? What did the first trappers and explorers to the Great Basin call this river? In this presentation you will hear a few stories about those trappers and explorers, the names they gave to the river, and even a little controversy surrounding the Humboldt.
