Global Conservation Studies Education and Training Center
The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute supports global efforts to conserve species and train conservationists. The Education and Training Center serves students and professionals attending programs ranging from a few days to a full semester. The facility combines a renovated structure for classrooms with a two-story addition for wet and dry research labs, offices, and outdoor classrooms. The design follows a Facilities Master Plan for the campus, formerly used as a U.S. Quartermaster Remount Station and horse breeding facility. Both planning and building design services were part of Ayers Saint Gross’ Indefinite Delivery and Quantities Contract with the Smithsonian Institution.
