The combo tour to the Museum of Life and Science and the Duke Lemur Center is full as of 6/30/17. This is due to the fact that we have reached our capacity of 140 people for the Lemur Center. We will not be accepting additional registrations for this tour. A few people have asked about a waitlist. Rather than create one now, we will contact the registered attendees submit payment after 6/30/17 in the order that they register to see if they would like to add this tour. As we do not anticipate many cancellations, we do not want to keep people waiting to hear about a waitlist when it is unlikely that spaces will open up. We are excited that interest for this tour has been so great and wish we could accommodate everyone, but want to ensure the best possible experience for those who have already registered.

The Greensboro Science Center is pleased to host this year’s AZADV Regional Conference! We are looking forward to having you all here in October. Your attendance at this conference embodies our conference theme – “Building Connections through Conservation.”
