Elk Country

Our home here at the center of the PA Wilds lives up to its name. The Elk Country landscape is home to the largest free-roaming elk herd in the northeast. It’s not uncommon to find them grazing in our backyards. While some people are still discovering that Pennsylvania is home to elk, we’ve been stewarding them for decades and finding ways to celebrate their beauty and resilience.

Wildlife, fresh air, and tall trees aren’t the only natural resources native to the Pennsylvania Wilds. A strong and creative artisan community thrives here, drawing inspiration from the natural beauty that is all around.

New Look & New Vendors - We hope you enjoy our new Marketplace!

We recently transitioned from an online gift shop to a maker marketplace. This means that instead of only selling products from PA Wilds Conservation Shops, various artisans and craftspeople from the PA Wilds now sell on our platform with us! (That’s why it’s now the PA Wilds Marketplace!)  This equates to more awesome products for you and more opportunities for our rural makers. Please bear with us as we finalize this new ecommerce platform, and have fun meeting our first batch of participating artisan makers!
