A field RESEARCH ASSOCIATION IN MONTANA dedicated to experiencING, learning, and leaving a legacy in geology education.
The Geology Field Station, near Red Lodge, Montana is not easily forgotten. From the dusty jeep trail, to Jeanette's 40-year tenure in the kitchen, to the sweeping view of the Beartooth Mountain Range, YBRA has created a place we're proud to call home. A place where students, alumni, and everyone else in between had an experience that shapes a lifetime. It's these experiences that make YBRA special.
Education is at the core of all we do. It's why we first opened our doors and it's why our doors remain open today. We have partnered with universities, research institutions, corporations, and private donors to lead several generations in earth science education. We've seen many students begin to truly learn the science of geology on our campus and in our rustic classrooms at YBRA. This is something we hang our hat on.
On November 21, 1936, the Princeton Geological Association secured a five-year lease on the Geological Field Station. Since this time, little has changed at YBRA. Our authenticity is reflected in hand-made windows of the main lodge to the timbers of the Erling Dorf cabin. Field earth sciences in the mountains of Montana and Wyoming remain our calling that shapes us and will continue to do so for years to come.
"YBRA is the gold standard of field camps in the United States" -- Shawn Mahmood, Alumni
