TAKE ACTION!: Outdoor Gear Swap and Collection Event

March 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Do you have unused outdoor gear lying around the house? How about a bike you have outgrown? Give it a second life by selling or swapping it with someone else at an outdoor gear swap and gear/bike collection event hosted by Ijams Nature Center and River Sports Outfitters! Join us on Saturday, March 7, from 9am- Noon for a day of giving gear a second life!

As part of this event, we will also be collecting usable gear for a Knoxville-based scout group and we will be collecting bikes/bike parts for Kickstand Knoxville.

We have a few different ways you can participate:

    1. Want to sell/swap your slightly loved gear? Fill out this application to get your own designated spot for the gear swap. ( You only need a designated spot if you are planning on selling your stuff). Spots are $10. Click HERE to register.
    2. Have stuff you want to bring to swap with others (no money exchanged)–come on out!!
    3. Have bikes or bike parts that you aren’t using anymore, bring them out to be given to Kickstand Bicycle Collective. Kickstand is an all-volunteer initiative to put bicycles on the streets of Knoxville and surrounding area and primarily serves those who have limited resources and may not have access to other forms of transport. The Collective practices reuse of resources and recycling of materials in all practical ways. Learn more about them HERE.
    4. Have usable gear that you want to go to a good cause- look no further!! We are partnering with Gear Forward to help a local scout group (The Great Smoky Mountain Council Cub Scout Pack 213 in Knoxville) to collect the resources they need to create a lending library of gear to lend out to families so they can take their scouts on many great adventures. They are looking to collect: tents, sleeping bags, day packs, sleeping mats, and even some scouting  uniforms.  If you have any of these things, the scouts will have a collection area at this event to accept usable outdoor equipment.
