40 years at YBRA

Jeanette Reinhart celebrates 40 years at YBRA this year. There was a small get together with wine and cake on Jeanette’s cabin deck with the kitchen crew and Jeanette’s son and future mother of Jeanettes 1st grandbaby, Shawn and Chrissy. 

SIU back at YBRA

SIU made an unplanned stay at YBRA after fires in Glacier National Park kept them from their last two days of field camp there. We had beds for most but others had the pleasure of camping at the picturesque point in camp. It was nice to see the group again. 

Annual committee meeting

  July 12th was the annual council meeting. It was held in Red Lodge at the Red Lodge community foundation. The meeting was followed by one of Jeanette and company’s great lunches! After the lunch, Marv Kauffman was presented with the Russ Dutcher award. 

Annual lunch by Dr. Eric Ferre

Dr. Ferre created another spectacular dinner for the YBRA staff. This year was marinated Mongolian beef strips which were cooked  at the table on fine grained mafic rocks that were hand picked by Dr. Ferre from the Elk basin. A nice way to combine cooking with geology!
