Celebrating Another Dow-supported Community Project
Ellis Bird Farm is very pleased to complete another unique and innovative project at Ellis Bird Farm. Thanks to a Dow Community Grant, we have been able to hire Wayne Froese of Top Peg Timber Framing to design and build a beautiful gazebo featuring wood milled from the old/dying spruce trees that Charlie Ellis planted along Prentiss Road in 1956. The gazebo also features recycled post-industrial plastic, donated by Dow, which has been used for the decking and railings. The gazebo will be officially opened at 2 PM on Thursday September 3rd. The public is invited to attend.
