We are celebrating Arbour Day at Ellis Bird Farm this year! This means for one day, we will be open before Victoria Day weekend. On Saturday, May 4th, we will be doing a two-part celebration of Arbour Day with Charlie's Trees being the star attraction.
First, we are looking for strong and able volunteers, aged 16 years or older, who would like to lend a hand moving trees onsite as we redistribute seedling spruce trees from Charlie Ellis' original shelter belt to new locations. Volunteers need to be on hand at 9:30AM and will receive lunch following a morning of tree moving. Please register ahead to be part of this effort by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Second, we are offering Charlie's Trees to the general public between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Bring your own spade and pot, make a donation and take a spruce tree seedling to plant at home, spreading Charlie Ellis' tree-planting legacy across Central Alberta.
