DCNR, Partners to Dedicate Kinzua Bridge State Park Visitor Center and Park Office on Sept. 15
September 15, 2016
Kinzua Bridge State Park dedicates its new Visitor Center on September 15. LEED certification will be sought for the building, which includes water-efficient plumbing fixtures; a geothermal heating and cooling system; regionally sourced materials with a high level of recycled content; sustainably certified wood; and the diversion of construction debris and waste to recycling centers instead of landfills. The facility is the location of the first ‘PA Wilds Conservation Shop’, a result of a public-private partnership with the non-profit PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship. The PA Wilds Conservation Shop sells PA Wilds-branded merchandise, as well as one-of-a-kind artisan wares from local artisans juried through The Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania. DCNR has been making significant investments in its facilities and attractions in the Pennsylvania Wilds. This visitor center is intended to complement our other regional investments, including the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle, the Elk Country Visitor Center, and the Wildlife Center at Sinnemahoning. It gives visitors the opportunity to spend several days in the region enjoying nature and the unique and special character of the area.
