PA Wilds Conservation Shop
at Kinzua Bridge State Park
Our flagship store opened in August 2016 and has been helping local makers expand their markets while also providing travelers with an opportunity to “take home a piece of the Pennsylvania Wilds” while visiting the Kinzua Bridge Skywalk, an impressive attraction in the region. It’s a win-win that provides an economic boost to our rural communities.
Our online PA Wilds Conservation Shop allows travelers, locals and anyone who loves the PA Wilds to easily go online and purchase products made in the region. The site includes information about the makers who produced the products, allowing these buyers to learn more about the story behind their purchased goods. Featured products are currently pulled from our inventory at the brick-and-mortar Conservation Shop.
PA Wilds Conservation Shop at the
Lycoming County Visitors Center
This shop opened April 2018 in Williamsport, the largest city in the Pennsylvania Wilds. Tens of thousands of people live in the city, and many more visit throughout the year for some of its signature events, including Little League Baseball, which hosts international teams. Products are geared toward the local natural assets and themes, such as baseball tees and gear reminiscent of the Pine Creek Rail Trail, a 63-mile bike trail with a terminus in Lycoming County.
Does it matter where the stuff you buy comes from?
We think know so.
Which is why we source products at our PA Wilds Conservation Shops from makers in the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania.
We’re looking for producers that can fit these three main criteria.
