Thousands of people will flock to Presque Isle this summer to check out the sun and sand. And if you're looking to take a seasonal souvenir home, we have just the place for you.

For most visitors to the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, it's a trip to grab a park map or check out the interactive exhibits, maybe even climb the 75-foot observation tower.

"We sell a lot of these beach glass frames they contain beach glass driftwood sand all from Presque Isle,” said Anthony Perino, Director of Operations for TREC Foundation.

But for some, it's a chance to gaze at the works of local artists or pick up a Presque Isle souvenir.

"These are really nice keepsakes for kids and adults,” said Anthony

Presque Isle Gallery and Gifts has been a part of TREC since its opening in 2006. It used to make a home in the Stuhl Center on Presque Isle.

“One of the nicest compliments that we get often is that this is one of the nicest gift shops that a lot of these tourists have been to in the region,” said Anthony.

Today, it boasts the work of more than 50 local artisans, from photography to jewelry to fine art.

"Linda Daughtery and her husband are both local and do these resin cutouts of Presque Isle, these are extremely unique,” said Anthony. “And you get these really unique bursts of color.”

Most of the work features the beauty of Presque Isle, and every sale aids in keeping that beauty alive.

“All of our proceeds from sales and from local artists and any work that I bring in benefits the TREC Foundation,” said Anthony. “Which is a nonprofit that supports visitor experience and educational programming here at TREC.”
