Have you noticed the Purple Martin house in Community Park?

Join Russ Hefty for a drop-in program for information about Purple Martins, see the Purple Martin House in Community Park and learn how to attract & house them on your own property.

We will gather at shelter #2.  Please bring your binoculars if you have them; binoculars are a great way to observe the nesting birds without being too intrusive.  Russ can answer questions about Purple Martins and will have handouts on how to be a purple martin landlord.  From the shelter we can walk towards the house to observe. 


This project came about through the Village Wildlife Committee.

Russ Hefty has a degree in Horticulture and is the former Conservation Supervisor at the City of Madison Parks.
