Video Interview Ian Billick Rocky Mountain Biological Lab (RMBL)
On your next visit to Crested Butte – head North past the ski resort base area and continue out Gothic Road to the historical townsite of Gothic Colorado an the home of the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab. There is a general store and a brand new interactive RMBL Visitors Center. The Weldon & Rosalie Weekley Visitor’s Center is a great new addition and educational for adults and kids.
About Rocky Mountain Biological Lab (RMBL) is a unique non-profit here at the North end of our valley. They are located in the historic town site of Gothic and at the base of the majestic Gothic mountain with offices in downtown Crested Butte. Every summer more than 100 scientists and students travel here from around the world to conduct high altitude research in this pristine mountain setting. I have had the opportunity to get to know Ian Billick – the Executive Director of RMBL, and in addition to coordinating a vast array of scientific projects, personnel, capital projects, land acquisitions, and a new Visitors Center, he is also committed to educational outreach. I support RMBL and his vision which includes providing educational programs for both youth and adults. Every year they work with local biology students at the Crested Butte Community School to study the Slate River where they measure the water quality, collect and analyze the aquatic insects, and take soil samples. They also provide a long list of summer programs available to youth and adults including their Kid’s Nature Camp, and Adult Science Tours that explore our mountain meadows, forests, and streams. RMBL is a non-profit providing empirical data that will help causes around the world, and contributes to the uniqueness of our valley, one more ingredient that makes Crested Butte a special place.
