Welcome to Yellowstone River Parks Association

Welcome to YRPA! We’re a volunteer-driven organization helping to build parks and trails along the Yellowstone River Greenway in Billings, Montana. The Yellowstone is the longest undammed river in the lower 48 states and a treasure for the community of Billings. YRPA was founded in 1991, and both through ownership and by partnering with public land agencies we help to manage more than 2,000 acres of green space.

We meet every Wednesday at 5:30pm at the Billings Community Foundation, 404 N 30th (historic red building). To participate remotely via zoom, email us for the link (yrpa@yrpa.org)  


We will not be updating our website with warnings or closures, as the situation on the ground is changing rapidly. For more information, please see your local news or other emergency information platforms. Be careful out there!
