The National Parks Store: Shopping the Southwest
The National Parks Store in Oro Valley opens a window into Southwest culture, artistry, and history. You’ll find a stunning variety of authentically traditional and modern interpretations of Hopi kachina dolls, Zuni fetishes, Navajo jewelry, and basketry, weaving, and pottery from different cultures.
We work with regional American Indian artisans to bring you the best of authentic American Indian art and craft. The store introduces you to these talented keepers of their culture in interpretive exhibits.
Other local cultural offerings include handmade Mexican crafts such as popular Oaxacan woodcarvings and Mata Ortiz pottery; packaged food made of desert ingredients; and ceramics, soaps, home goods, and other gifts with a Sonoran Desert theme.
We have books galore! As an independent, nonprofit bookstore and publisher, WNPA’s list includes American Indian and American history, national parks, cooking, nature, and children’s stories.
Speaking of children, there’s a large section of toys, plush animals, clothing, games, and activities. Junior Rangers can find themed gear to proudly announce their participation.
National park collectibles and clothing allow you to show your love for our American treasures. Or you can grab water bottles, hats, and other gear to take on your national park adventure.
The National Parks Store conducts regular presentations that cover Southwest nature, culture, history, and more led by experts in their fields. Popular trunk shows introduce the stunning works of art and fine craft that you can find in the store.
Best of all, store sales help WNPA support our 70+ partner parks and enhance the visitor experience today and tomorrow.
