June 13th 2022 Flood Update Information

On June 13th, much of South Central Montana had very high water in our local rivers and streams due to combined snow melt and rainfall.  The result of this locally in Carbon County, Montana was a 500+ year flood event that had Rock Creek running through the southern part of Red Lodge necessitating evacuations with very little notice, and abundant property, bridge and highway damage.  Many of the areas are starting down the path of recovery.  This includes YBRA in addressing long term stabilization options for the bridge across Rock Creek to access the road up to camp.  We encourage anyone interested in the most up to date information to check the Carbon Alert website, which includes information regarding flood recovery fund raising and local volunteering opportunities.  Click here to go to the Carbon Alert Incident page.

 

As always, visitors such as potential clients, YBRA alumni or other interested parties who wish to tour the camp should contact YBRA in advance either via phone, 815-790-0288 or via email at creasy6@gmail.com.  

Building Bridges to the Earth

YBRA is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that owns and operates a field station near Red Lodge, MT providing access for Earth Science courses and researchers to the diverse geological and ecological natural laboratory of the region.

Since our founding in 1936, we have played a vital role in the education of over 7,000 university students. For many, this experience was transformative and critical to launching successful careers in government, academia, and the resource and environmental industries.

Annually, YBRA hosts 6 – 8 universities, a paleontological institute, and a variety of other groups totaling over 350 participants.

Educational Research in the Field

We also sponsor professional and community-centered symposia, workshops, seminars, and open houses. Our annual YBRA Symposium features leaders in their field who discuss current issues in Earth Science and industry.

YBRA has a long and exceptional legacy in supporting geoscience education. In celebration of our 80th anniversary, we launched a “Building Bridges” fund raising campaign to enhance and expand the educational experience of students.

We invite you to discover YBRA, get involved, and join us in empowering future generations of geoscientists.
