Tiffany Train Ride – Birding Special
Date(s) - September 12
7:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ride the rails through the Tiffany Wetland Bottoms with the Citizen Science staff from Beaver Creek Reserve. Spend the day on an open-air, antique train while exploring the wetlands. The round-trip ride, approximately 14 miles, will let you see what makes these wetlands so unique and important to our plant and wildlife habitat. Be sure to pack a cooler with snacks and refreshments for the day while we tour and hike the trails, 0.25 -0.5 miles each. Participants should dress for the weather and possibly wet terrain. Bring binoculars and any wanted field guides. Rain or shine, don’t miss this exciting event! Driving to Tiffany Wildlife Area is approximately a 45-minute drive from Eau Claire. Follow Highway 85 to Durand and take Highway 25. Please note there is a new parking area for the train ride. From Highway 25, turn into the DNR parking lot, drive across the tracks, turn right and drive through the gate to the field north of the DNR lot. Follow the path through the trees to the train for boarding. Registration and full payment required by September 10.
