Conservation Campouts 2014

There is a place where it's possible to hear the call of a native red fox on the chase and the scream of a brown kiwi stalking worms—a place where nature meets science. Take in the beauty of the Shenandoah Mountains while enjoying a rare glimpse of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute's headquarters (SCBI) in Front Royal, Virginia. This facility is normally closed to the public, but will be open just to you for an unique evening of exploration and discovery! Your adventure begins with a keeper-led tour and continues with a campfire under the stars. Bunk in tents provided by FONZ, then rise for breakfast and a family-friendly activity.
