SCBI Autumn Conservation Festival – October 4 & 5

Join us for an unforgettable day of tours and activities at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Smithsonian scientists, whose research spans the globe, will be on hand to help you explore the tools and technology they use to understand animals and their environments. There will be food, live music, animal displays and a great day to tour the SMSC/SCBI property for the only days out of the year the general public can visit this research facility other than our fall and spring SCBI lecture series.

Please visit the FONZ website for information on purchasing parking passes for both days. Students from George Mason University can take a tour bus from the Fairfax campus to the festival on Saturday, October 4th, for a $10 fee which covers admission to the festival and transportation costs. Please see ACF2014 Mason bus flyer for more information on the student bus trip.
