The Chamber of Commerce, City of Orofino, Urban Forests of Orofino, KLER, and Orofino Rotary club are spearheading a community spring clean up effort again this year. Individuals and organizations are asked to clean up around their homes and workplaces. In addition, groups and individuals are encouraged to sign up and clean an area in need in their neighborhood or community. To sign up or for more information please contact the Clearwater County Chamber of Commerce at (208) 476-4335 or – Erica Holland, Director.

In celebration of Arbor Day, Urban Forestry of Orofino (UFO) in conjunction with the Idaho Dept. of Lands and Clearwater Potlatch Timber Protective Association (CPTPA) will be giving out free seedlings and holding an event raffle for ornamental trees/shrubs. Information on planting and tree care will be available. T-shirts are also being ordered. Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest will be handing out fire wise materials from Smokey the Bear. For more information call the City of Orofino at (208) 476-4725.

The community estate/yard sale in the Orofino City Park fair exhibit building will also be going on this year thanks to the Orofino Rotary Club. This is a good opportunity to clean up and recycle your household goods and make money doing it or support a good cause. Please contact Cathy at 208-851-8247 for more information or to reserve a booth.
