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. Yellowstone River Parks Association 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 are especially proud of our latest endeavor — an expansion of John H. Dover Memorial Park! Check out our video…

Please complete our volunteer survey to help us learn more about you, your skills and your interests in volunteering in particular parks.  2022_2023 Volunteer Survey

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). Our Board of Directors (BOD) meetings are the third Wednesday of each month. BOD meetings are open to the public; however, YRPA reserves the right to close these meetings to the public when necessary.

YRPA work is only possible through the support and engagement of our community. We are deeply grateful to our partners, volunteers, donors, board members, and neighbors for helping make all of this possible!
