The outlet is named for a legendary local naturalist and researcher, and provides a glimpse at barr’s efforts in tandem with Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL), one of the largest and oldest scientific field stations in the world located in nearby Gothic. The billy barr was designed in partnership with architectural firm Winteriors
and features memorabilia on loan from RMBL and the Crested Butte Museum.
