Charlie, Winnie, and the Bluebirds: The story of Ellis Bird Farm

November 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free

There is nobody better than Myrna Pearman to talk about the history of the Ellis Bird Farm. She is well known for her 30 year shepherding of Ellis Bird Farm, guiding it as it grew and developed into a well known sanctuary for mountain bluebirds and tree swallows. Ellis Bird Farm is a non-profit company incorporating a working farm, public garden and education centre.

She writes a monthly nature photo essay in the Red Deer Advocate (third Thursday of the month) as well as a column (Wild Neighbours) in The Gardener magazine, and produces the newsletter for the Red Deer River Naturalists

Myrna Pearman was honoured in July 2017 with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Bluebird Society (NABS), and Ellis Bird Farm hosted the 38th NABS conference at the site in that year .

Recently, Ms. Pearman has published a history of the Ellis Bird Farm, with gorgeous photographs, which she will share with us during this presentation.
