BAR HARBOR — More than 40 private sellers will be offering deals on nearly- new and lovingly-used outdoor equipment and sporting goods at the Friends of Acadia Community Outdoor Gear Sale and Swap from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at Mount Desert Island High School, 1081 Eagle Lake Road.

Among the types of gear slated for sale are new or used camping and outdoor adventure goods, tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, skis, snowshoes, optics, fishing and boating items, bicycles and accessories, electronics, optics clothing, organized sports (team or individual) items such as baseball, football, basketball and soccer equipment and clothing.

Canoes, fresh and saltwater kayaks, stand up paddleboards and other paddlesports gear will also be for sale.

“Holding a sale like this is the ultimate way for folks to recycle gear and equipment rather than leave it getting dusty on a shelf somewhere,” said FOA organizer Earl Brechlin. “Sellers have a chance to make a little cash, probably to guy new gear, and buyers will likely be able to find incredible bargains.”

Friends of Acadia will also have information about becoming a member and a table where attendees can learn more about opportunities to volunteer including working on trails in Acadia National Park.

MDI High School rules prohibit all dogs from the property. For more information call 207-288-3340 or email gear@friendsofacadia.org.
