Kootenai River Network, Inc. is a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that accomplishes its goals through grants and contributions from collaborators. The group formed late in 1991 in response to citizens concerns of threatened or deteriorating water quality and aquatic resources in the Kootenai River Basin. The primary purpose of the Kootenai River Network is to foster communication and implement collaborative processes among private and public interests in the watershed.
Yellowstone River Conservation District Council (YRCDC) is made up of representatives from twelve conservation districts bordering the main stem of the Yellowstone River. Conservation districts have over 60 years experience successfully working and cooperating with private individuals, groups, and agencies to conserve Montana’s natural resources.
