  • Beautiful spot to bird watch. The nature center has some impressive taxidermy and other cool items to see. There are farm animals for kids (or kids at heart) to see and touch. It's a great place for anyone who likes animals.
  • An absolutely beautiful piece of nature in Central Alberta. It has a visitor centre, tea house, and pier for kids to go "pond dipping". An excellent stop for both kids and adults.
  • This was our second year visiting Ellis bird farm. Our daughter really enjoys the chance to interact with nature. My wife and I enjoy the tea house, most notably the pies.
  • Nice civilized way to spend quality time with my family. Kids muck about doing their thing, mum and dad just enjoy the sites and sounds. Relaxing.
  • Hidden jewel in Central Alberta, don't let the neighbours dissuade you from stopping and taking in this unique bird sanctuary. Take a picnic or pop into the tea house for gourmet food. Don't forget the ice cream!
