UM Outdoor Program to Host Used Outdoor Gear Sale

April 03, 2017

MISSOULA – The Outdoor Gear Sale put on by the University of Montana’s Outdoor Program will take place from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 12, in the University Center Atrium. Anyone in the Missoula community can buy or sell used outdoor equipment including bikes, boating equipment, climbing gear, camping gear, clothing and more. 

Those interested in selling gear can drop off their items between 7 and 11 a.m. the day of the sale in the UC Atrium. Sellers can pick up gear and receive a cash payout for the sold items between 6 and 7:30 p.m. the same day. The UM Outdoor Program will collect 20 percent of the selling price and proceeds benefit the UM Outdoor Program for new programs and equipment.

The UM Outdoor Program also seeks volunteers to help with the event. Flexible shifts and roles are available throughout the day, and those that work at least three hours gain access to a special preview sale.
