Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy (IDYCA)

The cadets volunteered over the weekend of April 4 to help clean up the Hells Canyon Recreation area. They started at the Upper Pittsburg Landing and worked approximately three miles up Klopten Creek Trail. Their hard work was very much appreciated, not only by the Hells Canyon Recreation Collaborative group, but the community as well.

This last week they worked on cleaning up Hwy 11, starting in Pierce and working their way south towards Weippe. The roads look wonderful after their hard work, and we should extend our thanks to the school and cadets for all they do for our community.

Clearwater County


As the winter season comes to an end, we need to make sure to thank our Groomer volunteers for all their hard work and dedication to maintaining our riding trails we enjoy throughout the winter.

They spend their weekends either grooming the trails, moving the groomer or tending to maintenance on the groomer itself, so we all can enjoy our beautiful area in the winter months. Thank you, Clearwater County Groomer Members and Volunteers, for you hard work. Until next year.

Weippe News

The Weippe mobile food pantry provides food to those in need each month on the fourth Tuesday of the month. They provide food to those on the hill whether it is Pierce, Headquarters, Fraser or Weippe. Because we are a drive through – we begin distribution of the food once it has been offloaded.

The truck generally arrives around 9 a.m. and we are distributing food as early as 9:30 a.m. and we will stay and hand out food until 11 a.m. unless we run out earlier. The next food distribution will be April 27.

Pierce Community Center

With heavy snow falls behind us, hopefully, the Pierce Community Center has placed their outside basketball hoop outside in their parking lot under the streetlight. The kids have already been enjoying the new hoop since it was placed outside last Friday.

The center staff ask that the kids be respectful of the hoop, take care of it and make sure others are doing the same. The Community Center does NOT provide an outside ball and the kids must bring their own ball to use outside.

With less than two months away from reopening the pool, time is drawing near for training to begin for the lifeguards. The pool is hoping to have a full staff this year and are still seeking applications for lifeguards for this summer season. Applicants need to be at least 16 years of age or older and a strong swimmer. No lifeguard experience is necessary, training will be provided prior to certification, which is necessary for the position.

For further information or applications please contact Brandy at the Pierce Community Center during regular business hours, or their Facebook page where she or Katherine are also available for questions you may have. Applications can be picked up at the Community center and will need to be dropped off in person during regular business hours. Remember our business hours are Monday-Thursday 4 p.m.-7 p.m. and Friday’s 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Any events, news, or information you would like to share in the Clearwater Tribune under the Pierce/Weippe news, please be sure to contact Brandy Denison by social media or email at mrsfs24@gmail.com prior to the deadline on Monday to make the following Wednesday paper.
