Topic: The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) - success stories, tales from the field, and ongoing research efforts from this local world renowned research center
Wednesday, January 23
11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
213 E Main Street (Open House-Meet in the Middle)
The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) plays a leading role in the Smithsonian’s global efforts to save wildlife species from extinction and train future generations of conservationists. SCBI spearheads research programs at its headquarters in Front Royal, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C., and at field research stations and training sites worldwide. SCBI scientists tackle some of today’s most complex conservation challenges by applying and sharing what they learn about animal behavior and reproduction, ecology, genetics, migration and conservation sustainability. Kristin will share some of the conservation success stories, tales from the field, and ongoing research efforts from this local world renowned research center.
Bio- Kristin Black is the Friends of the National Zoo education programs specialist at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in Front Royal. She coordinates outreach programs highlighting SCBI’s efforts to save species and habitats locally and around the world. Kristin has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from James Madison University and a master’s degree in environmental education from Slippery Rock University. Prior to joining the team at SCBI, she held positions in education and animal care at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program, and SeaWorld San Diego.
Note from Beth Waller: In late March 2016, we opened a new space on Main Street in the Middle of Main building. It is called Team Waller’s “Open House: Meet in the Middle” and will serve as a resource to our community. We will offer a wealth of real estate and community information, as well as cutting edge technology to learn more about listings, the buying process, and our local community attractions and resources. This space isn’t just for Beth Waller Real Estate; it is for the entire community. We will open our doors to community groups to educate the public about the causes that are close to their hearts and also offer our space as a meeting venue to anyone in need of a local location. Helping our community grow and serve as a resource to our neighbors is “What Matters” to us.
