Yellowstone Bend Citizens Council

Yellowstone Bend Citizens Council was formed in 2014 in the Livingston area in Park County, Montana.

About us

Yellowstone Bend Citizens Council is Northern Plains’ newest affiliate working to protect our paradise. Formed in 2014 our base is the Livingston area in Park County, Montana, from the Crazy Mountains to Paradise Valley and the Absaroka Range. Our main issues are mitigating the effects of oil and coal transport through Livingston, whether by train or truck, and to help citizens locally and statewide make the transition from dirty fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy, such as community wind, solar, and increasing residential & commercial energy efficiency.  Learn more at:  Stay updated on our activities if you use Facebook by visiting:
