PA Wilds Conservation Shops are retail locations tied to public lands of the Pennsylvania Wilds and managed by the PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship, Inc. The primary supply line for the Conservation Shops is the Wilds Cooperative of PA. Shop on link (see previous link) or visit one of two physical shop locations:

• Kinzua Bridge State Park, 296 Viaduct Rd, Mt Jewett, PA 16740 - 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.

• Lycoming County Visitors Bureau, 102 W 4th St, Williamsport, PA 17701 - This satellite shop opened in 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, as well as PA Wilds branded merchandise.

• Bradford Regional Airport Kiosk, 212 Airport Rd., Lewis Run, PA 16738 - The PA Wilds Conservation Shop Kiosk at Bradford Regional Airport helps travelers orient themselves to the Pennsylvania Wilds when they land in Bradford. A room inside the entrance of the airport showcases products that were made by PA Wilds artisans and reflect the region. A tablet allows visitors to peruse things to see and do in and find regionally made wares at No physical sales currently take place at the site.

• Wilds on Main, 205 E Main St., Lock Haven, PA 17745 - Opening at the end of 2022, the Wilds on Main store resides in the Downtown Lock Haven, Inc. office.
