Summer 2017 season is fast approaching here at YBRA and we could not be more excited for what it will bring! New students, new research, new building projects, and of course, the same great rocks and views at your favorite field station.
The Russ Dutcher student dormitory is officially underway as we broke ground for its foundation yesterday April 24th! Nestled just above the road between Bucher and Siegfriedt, the bunkhouse will sleep up to twelve students and is projected to be finished this coming summer.
The creation of this dorm will also allow re-conversion of Wadsworth back into a study hall to give us much needed study space for groups, especially during peak times when several groups are on campus.
For the past 80 years YBRA has been dedicated to experiencing, learning, and leaving a legacy in Earth science education. We would not be able to keep opening our doors and make upgrades to the camp, like the Dutcher Dorm, without the consistent support and dedication of our volunteers, schools, partners, alumni, and other donors.
