Ellis Bird Farm received a very generous donation of bird and bumblebee boxes from Lee Valley Tools in Edmonton earlier this year. The donation project was undertaken by Kelly Miciak out of the Edmonton Lee Valley store. She and her friend Davy cut and packaged the bird and bumblebee boxes, which were then picked up and built by service groups and organizations across the city. Other Edmonton Lee Valley staff also assisted with kit creation and with building some of the boxes. EBF benefits greatly from all this hard work on behalf of the birds and the bees. Service groups that built kits included Sherwood Park Cubs, Parkallen Scout Troop, the Northern Alberta Wood Carvers Association, St. Albert Cubs, Baturyn Cubs, Glenrose Rehabilitation and the Edmonton Lee Valley employees. What an amazing project--we are so grateful for everyone's involvement and hard work.
