Donate or Consign with a portion of the fee supporting the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation

Consign your used gear for a 30% consignment fee and a portion 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! Thirty percent of fees will be donated 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.
