Our mission is to promote Earth Science education and research by offering facilities for field studies, and educational workshops, symposia, and conferences for the public and professionals.
Fun Run donations solely support the YBRA Science Teachers Workshop which provides middle and high school teachers in the region with the opportunity to enhance their understanding of Earth Science, meet science teaching standards, and earn renewal units or recertification credits.
The YBRA Science Teachers Workshops are integral to our educational outreach mission and benefit science teachers, the students they educate, and the wider community. A deeper appreciation of natural science underpins informed, environmentally sustainable decisions and actions.
Fun Run donations in 2019 helped fund a virtual science teacher’s workshop in 2021 (YBRA was closed in 2020 due the pandemic). Publicly available data, literature and relevant software were used to study the pika ecology of the Beartooth Mts. and explore potential connections to climate change.
