We are happy to announce our two Prospective Student Tour dates for Spring 2020. Current or soon-to-be undergraduate students, as well as recent college graduates, from any institution—in any major—can join us at the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation campus, within the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (Front Royal, Virginia) on one of these dates:


  • Friday, March 20, 2020
  • Thursday, April 2, 2020


Take a guided van tour of one of the most incredible conservation research facilities in the world. Dine with students and staff in our on-site Dining Commons. Step inside a dorm room, and see the classrooms and labs where lectures and activities take place. Learn about the amazing, hands-on, immersive educational opportunities that await you as an SMSC semester student!


Parents and non-student guests are welcome to join as space is available (only one guest per registrant, please). Free shuttle transportation is available from the George Mason University campus in Fairfax, Virginia. Space is limited and tours often become full, so register soon.
