Why take home a piece of the PA Wilds?

More than 90 percent of the products you see in the PA Wilds Conservation Shops were created by artists, makers, and other small businesses who live in the PA Wilds. That means that we are supporting and growing locally rooted wealth, as well as allowing these artisans to reflect our region’s natural assets by depicting and celebrating the places and experiences that can only be found in the PA Wilds. The PA Wilds Conservation Shops and PA Wilds Marketplace have a huge mission impact on how we are able to marry conservation and economic development.
