who we are

We are a coalition of community leaders, concerned citizens and recreation enthusiasts from eastern Montana working to improve the Lower Yellowstone River on behalf of our communities.


We formed the Lower Yellowstone River Coalition to help expand sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities along the Lower Yellowstone River. We envision a future for eastern Montana where more families want to raise their children here, more small businesses want to set down roots here, and more visitors want to stay and explore.
