Blue Feather Awards: Each year, Ellis Bird Farm honours Albertans who have been exemplary in their efforts to conserve bluebirds and other native cavity-nesting birds. This year, two bluebirders were recognized, Clarke Snell of Hanna (left) and Bill Taylor of Calgary. We will post more details about their accomplishments shortly.
Opening of the Dow Bridge: Thanks to a Community Grant from Dow and the talents of Wayne Froese (Top Peg Timber Framing) and Jonathan Beekman (Full Circle Plastics), Ellis Bird Farm has a new beautiful bridge. The bridge, featuring post-consumer recycled plastic and repurposed wood (from downed poplars), is a work of art. We are grateful to everyone who has been involved in this project!
