TIFFANY WILDLIFE AREA has a very large abundance of wildlife habitat on more than 13,500 acres.  It has the state's largest continuous bottom land hardwood forests.  Timber harvests help to maintain the area's forestland of aspen and oak.  This variety provides food and shelter for various wildlife such as deer, ruffed rouse and beaver.  Dead trees are left standing to provide homes for the wildlife.

Some areas are periodically mowed and the DNR uses controlled burns to maintain the grasslands and meadows.  The burning of the meadows enhances the prairies and savanna plants that existed long before the white settlements.

Tiffany Bottoms State Natural Area is a small portion of the most extensive river delta in the Midwest and contains a representative portion of the larger Tiffany Bottoms floodplain forest.

Hunting and fishing is allowed in Tiffany during hunting seasons.  It is a remote area that produces white tail deer, ruffed grouse, turkey, squirrel and waterfowl.  Fur bearing animals such as beaver, otter, muskrat and raccoon are also common.

You do not need to be a hunter or fisherman to enjoy the benefits of the Tiffany Wildlife Area.  It is a most enjoyable place to be able to go and just sit and watch the birds that are in existence.  The most memorable of all sightings in the area are of the bald eagle, flying in its majestic beauty over the blue skies with large billowy clouds.  It is one sight that will remain with you forever.  Eagles, blandings turtle, massassaga rattlesnake, red shouldered hawk, the great egret and three fish; The crystal darter, river redhorse and blue sucker are on the endangered species list.  Many spring visitors come to the area to enjoy the flowers that bloom there.  Also a small railroad, the CHIPPEWA VALLEY MOTOR CAR ASSOCIATION runs through the area when the weather is appropriate.  The Tiffany Wildlife Area is a must see in order to enjoy the wilderness in all its splendid beauty.

Motorized vehicles are not allowed.  The trails are not marked but the area is open to hiking, cross country skiing and nature study.  Primitive camping is allowed by permit only within Tiffany's interior.  No developed sites are available.  Camping permits are available at the DNR office in Alma, Wisconsin.  Call Kris Johansen in the Alma office 608-655-6222 or email him.
