Purple Martin Event

Purple Martin 
"Raise the Gourds" 
Saturday, March 12th, 10-11:30 AM

Purple Martins are starting to migrate north again! 
 Last year, a Purple Martin housing unit with nesting gourds was installed at the park.  The gourds were stored for the winter after the birds headed south. 
We invite you to help prepare the gourds and raise the gourd rack so they are ready when the Martins arrive in our area this spring.
Local experts from the Purple Martin Society will be on hand with plenty of information to share about these long-distance migrants.
