Donate or Consign to benefit Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation
Donate your used gear and all proceeds will be donated to the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation.
Consign your used gear and the 15% consignment fee will be donated to the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation.
Visitors to the Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience have a chance to pick up some lightly used outdoor recreation-related equipment and earn some extra cash—which is perfect to jump-start your next new gear purchase! All consignment fees will be donated to the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation. You can also choose to donate the entire sale proceeds to the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation. The Foundation supports all of our Five Rivers MetroParks parks, conservation efforts and educational and recreational services.
The Used Gear Area provides a great place for outdoor adventurers to get that unused gear back in action with a new owner and support the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation. This reduces waste in our landfills and puts more gear in your collection. We are proud to help support aspiring outdoor enthusiasts get started on their own adventures by offering them the opportunity to purchase used gear as part of our Waste Free Initiative.
