& Bake Sale

Thank you to the Marquette Community who donated their gently used items and yummy baked goodies during last years event. With your continued help we hope to continue to make this an annual fundraiser for your local nature center.

This years Community Rummage & Bake Sale takes place Friday, September 6th; Saturday, September 7th from 9-2 pm; Saturday, September 14th from 9-4 pm. You can participate in the event by donating your gently used items, purchasing items at the sale, baking goodies for the bake sale or volunteering before, during or after the sale.

Come shop around for great deals and good finds on art, furniture, toys, and more to benefit your local nature center. We will accept gently used and working donations only. Select items will be priced, but most will be available for a donation.

All donations are tax-deductible (as allowable by law), and we are happy to provide a donation receipt.


Bakers Needed! If you enjoy baking please consider making some goodies for the bake sale and help support your local nature center. Please package as you see fit and provide an ingredient list for those with food allergies. If your baked goods are not priced we will do so for you.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact us at or call 906-228-6250. We need volunteers to help set up, organize sale items, bakers and clean-up after the event. We have volunteer shifts available Wednesday, September 4th , (work day to organize and price items) 6th, & 7th.


Donations will be accepted at the MooseWood Nature Center. If you have early donations please contact Tiffany at
