Non-profit groups of less than 30 attendees are considered workshops. RMBL makes it easy for these smaller groups and can design a program that supports their housing, dining, and meeting space needs. 


Meeting Spaces

RMBL has a variety of meeting spaces and configurations for your group, from a large lecture hall, classroom-style spaces, break-out rooms, and a fully equipped conference room.


Experience field station life in the historic townsite of Gothic, CO. We have many housing options available for use by groups. Cabins range from very rustic, with no running water or heat, to very comfortable with full kitchens and indoor bathroom facilities.


RMBL has a commercial kitchen and dining hall serving 3-meals a day during the prime research season. Workshop groups can enjoy dining among scientists and researchers at the billy barr Community Center.

Should the dining hall not be open during your workshop, RMBL also has a catering kitchen where groups can easily cook and prepare meals together.
