Purple Martin Parties
2019 Dates: July 12-13, 19-20, 26-27, 7:45 PM – 8:45 PM
Free and open to the public
We are in the process of locating the roost. We will let you know once we have confirmed its location!
Watch an acrobatic hurricane of birds as hundreds of thousands of Purple Martins “swirl” in the skies in and around the roosting site each evening. It’s better than the bats! Binoculars are optional. Lawn chairs, picnic blankets, cameras, and hats are highly recommended! This is a free event. Please consider making a donation to support our programming!
