Yellowstone County Beautification Projects 

Bright n' Beautiful has planted and maintained hardy perennial gardens at the Airport Hill 'Welcome to Billings' sign bed and near the shelter in the beautiful Shiloh Water Conservation Area. Since 2022, BnB has assisted the Friends of Canyon Creek, Inc., in keeping the Nez Perce Battlefield marker, pavilion and surrounding grounds clean and tidy in a way that honors the warriors and soldiers who died there during the Battle of Canyon Creek on September 13, 1877. The Canyon Creek Battlefield Site is located at the intersection of Buffalo Trail and Lipp Roads north of Laurel Montana. Interested in joining our corps of Canyon Creek volunteer caregivers? We'll be looking to fill slots from April through October in 2024. Please contact Bright n' Beautiful with your interest at (406) 248-6617 or brightnbeautifulbillings@gmail.com. We welcome your participation!
