Idaho UTV is not just a riding club!
Part of our club purpose is to engage in charitable, educational & lobbying activities, and to participate in other non-profit community events.
Organizations that Idaho UTV Club supported:
Adopt-A-Highway - We have adopted a two mile section of Highway 55 just north of Cascade and are responsible for removing trash twice a year. See interview of two of our board members (it incorrectly stated they were married) by local TV station about our spring clean-up: KTVB interview
Annual Coat & Food Drives - each year we donate to different community groups. In 2021 we had a special donation drive and gave over $1100 to the Cascade Food Pantry. We have also donated new and gently used coats & gloves and money for supplies to the Cascade school.
Idaho Recreational Council (IRC) - The IRC is comprised of Idahoans from all parts of the state with a wide spectrum of recreation interest and love for the future of Idaho and a desire to preserve recreation for future generations of Idahoans. We currently have two Idaho UTV club members who are part of the Steering Committee for IRC.

Owyhee County Roads Cleanup:
During the COVID-19 shut down, the off-road areas in the Owyhees had numerous visitors leaving trash and other problems. The Owyhee County Sheriff requested help in the cleanup effort of several roads. Idaho UTV Club and other groups were able to participate in the cleanup effort, with over 20 of our members volunteering! We were also featured on KBOI 2 Idaho News "Best of Idaho".
