Upper Yellowstone River Advisory Committee

The Upper Yellowstone River Advisory Committee (UYRAC) was formed after the June 2022 flood, and is made up of local landowners, agency professionals, technical experts, and local non-profits. It is facilitated by the Upper Yellowstone Watershed Group (UYWG), and its goals are to help landowners recover from flooding by providing technical, planning, and permitting expertise.
