Yellowstone River Parks Association’s 25th year was the most successful yet. YRPA’s goal is to improve public spaces along the Yellowstone River for your enjoyment. The quality and quantity of our works can be seen at Riverfront Park, Norm Schoenthal Island, Montana Audubon Center, Two Moon Park, Earl Guss Park, Four Dances BLM Natural Area, John H. Dover Memorial Park, and Joel’s Pond (our newest project behind Scheels). YRPA is still all-volunteer, which means that overhead is very low. However, our progress on your behalf is entirely dependent on the generosity of our supporters and the availability of talented volunteers. In 2016, hundreds of volunteers provided thousands of productive hours, and hundreds of donors helped fund some really cool projects. We also want to recognize the individuals and organizations listed below for their friendship, collaboration, consultation, in-kind and financial support, which made 2016 so special. Happy Holidays to all. YRPA looks forward to 2017.
