Come learn about one of the most beloved birds in the United States: Purple Martins. This weekend we will have programs to help you identify these large swallows and show you how to help protect them by putting up martin houses in your own home. At sunset, we will take a boat tour out to Bird Island to view the variety of birds that call this island home. Purple Martins come to roost on this tiny island for only a few weeks each year, so don't miss your opportunity to see these beautiful birds. Space is limited on the barge tours, so make reservations early by calling the park.
