THINGS TO DO:
Zoos, Sanctuaries & Wildlife Parks
The kids issue a chorus of surprise at their first glimpse of newly hatched tree swallows. Questions tumble out of their mouths. Wonder and enchantment light up their faces. Nature's endless diversity is on show at Ellis Bird Farm. Explore the native wildflower, hummingbird and water gardens. Dip nets to get a closer look at the pond creatures. You may even be lucky enough to spot a mountain bluebird, its bright sky blue feathers almost too dazzling to be natural. Central Alberta's countryside embodies all your imaginings of peace, well-being and abundance. Close your eyes and feel the prairie story come to life.
