Event Summary

Ellis Bird Farm opens for the 2019 season on Monday May 20th!
They will be celebrating the launch of Myrna Pearman's new book Charlie, Winnie and the Bluebirds, the much-anticipated story of the history of Ellis Bird Farm. Myrna will be signing books at 1:00 PM, so purchase a signed copy and meet the author, our knowledgeable and very talented site manager and resident biologist.
At 2:00PM, they will officially open our new viewing tower.

At 4:00PM, they will officially open the new Fred Schutz library. There are many amazing literary treasures to be viewed and read in our newly-dedicated library space in the Ellis Centre, including many of Fred Schutz' collection of nature-related volumes.
As well, the Ellis Cafe will be open for business with its new operators, A Little Bit of Thyme, out of Blackfalds. Cat Perry, our avid owl-watcher, will be on hand to talk to visitors about Ellie and Albert and their 2019 hatchlings. The "Year of the Grouse" display will be open in the Visitor Centre in addition to our previous existing displays and educational tools. We can't wait to share Ellis Bird Farm with you for another year. See you on Monday, May 20th!
