Ellis Bird Farm will open for the 2017 season on Monday, May 22rd at 11:00 AM. Site manager and resident biologist, Myrna Pearman, will be giving a presentation based on stories from her book Beauty Everywhere at 2:00 PM and will be available for book signing afterwards.
Cat Perry will be on hand from 12:00 until 2:00PM to talk to visitors about owls, and a spotting scope will be set up so visitors can get a close-up view of our resident owls, Ellie and Albert and their three owlets.
