& Bake Sale


The MooseWood Nature Center’s 2nd Annual Community Rummage & Bake Sale raised a significant amount of dollars last year to support the nature center. The 2018 Rummage Sale takes place August 17 -18 from 9-2 pm.

You can participate in the event by donating gently used items, purchasing items at the sale, baking goodies for the bake sale or volunteering before or during 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 906-228-6250 or email We need volunteers to help set up, organize sale items, bakers and clean-up after the event. We have volunteer shifts available August 15, (work day to organize and price items) 17, & 18th.



Donations will be accepted at the MooseWood Nature Center. If you have early donations please contact Tiffany at 228-6250.
