Purple Martin Watch Party
Bring your family and friends to experience the spectacle of the migration of thousands of Purple Martins. In the summer months, Purple Martins gather in large numbers before heading to their wintering grounds in South America. They spend their days feeding on flying insects to fuel up for their long journey and come together to rest at night, sometimes in groups of up to 500,000! The free, family-friendly event is fun for all ages.
Stop by our info table to chat with our staff and volunteers about Purple Martins and their amazing migration. And don't forget to bring lawn chairs.
