We are so proud of our part in 125 Nature Hot Spots of Alberta--it's an amazing undertaking by Leigh and Debbie and we highly recommend it!
125 Nature Hot Spots in Alberta is the just-published book by co-authors Debbie Olsen and Leigh McAdam. It is a book welcomed by nature-lovers across province as it highlights a huge cross-section of natural spaces in Alberta, both those that are widely known as well as many unique hidden treasures. Olsen and McAdam put a huge effort into researching for the book, doing the challenging mosquito-swatting navigatory work so that readers don't have to. The book has big glossy photographs and lots of helpful information. Finally, both Olsen and McAdam are old friends and supporters of Ellis Bird Farm and we are so proud that EBF included in the book (you can see the EBF spread on pages 140-143).
