Ellis Bird Farm (EBF) was honoured on July 21 to have a special visit by Her Honour, The Honourable Lois E. Mitchell, CM, AOE, LLD, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta.
The visit was arranged at Her Honour's request after she read an article about Ellis Bird Farm written by Rod Trentham in The Historical Society of Alberta's History Now newsletter.
Staff as well as past and current board members were on hand to welcome Her Honour. She was given a tour of the site, and EBF was pleased to be able to share details about the history of the organization, tell some of the stories that have made EBF so unique and successful, and highlight some of our research projects.
