Welcome to Ellis Bird Farm
Located in the heart of central Alberta, Ellis Bird Farm is both a working farm as well as a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Mountain Bluebirds, Tree Swallows and other native cavity-nesting birds. Drop-in visitors and tour groups are welcome at Ellis Bird Farm during the summer months, when we are open to the public. We invite you to stroll the trails, enjoy the beautiful gardens, see the world’s largest outdoor collection of bluebird nest boxes, take a tour out to our bluebird trail, visit the Visitor Centre and linger in the Tea House. We invite you to visit us! Enjoy a country drive in Central Alberta, find directions to Ellis Bird Farm here.
We need to know if you are planning to visit EBF with an organized group, especially children. Although we do not charge for drop-in visits, booked groups get priority for the facilities, including the dipping pier. We are often busy with booked groups (e.g., tours, day camps, special events) in the summer and, during inclement weather, we do not have extra space. In order to make visits pleasant for everyone, please phone ahead. Better yet, book a tour, our fees are nominal and our programs are awesome!
