Residents are invited to bring in new and used outdoor gear for the first-ever Dakota County Fix & Swap event Sunday, Oct. 6 from noon–4 p.m. at Dakota Lodge in Thompson County Park, 1200 Stassen Lane in West St. Paul.
The event is free and open to all outdoor enthusiasts. Bring usable outdoor gear for someone else and take something you need. All tents, backpacks, camping gear and clean, usable outdoor clothing of all sizes and genders are accepted. Anything in the swap area is up for grabs.
Bring broken or torn items to the Fix-It Clinic offered at the same time. Repair-savvy volunteers will guide residents through each step, from troubleshooting to a completed repair. Common outdoor items that can be fixed are zippers, backpacks, bikes and camping equipment.
