WISE Outdoor Gear Swap will be held on Saturday, March 9, 11am to 4pm at Tazlina Village Hall, Mile 110 Richardson Highway. As well as the chance to buy and sell used gear, we will have a crock pot lunch, mini-workshops to learn about using gear, and the WISE Annual Meeting.
We will accept any sort of outdoor or sports equipment and clothing. No firearms, or safety gear such as helmets or harnesses.
WISE will keep 25% of all sales to support our Bruce James Memorial Scholarship Fund, or you can donate your item and 100% will go to the fund!
About Our Name
WISE is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 with the mission of providing science and environmental education for Alaska's Copper River Valley. Our full name, Wrangell Institute for Science and Environment, references the nearby Wrangell Mountains, a symbol of the place we serve. Science, Environment, and the word Institute were included to show our educational focus. The happy combination of letters giving the acronym "WISE" was a positive factor in the final selection of the name.
WISE has no connection or affiliation with the former BIA school known as Wrangell Institute.
