Purple Martin Nest Check (Adults)

  • Wednesday, May 24, 2023
  • 10:00am - 11:30am

Purple martins return each spring to Prairie Ridge to nest and raise their young. While they are here, each week we check on their nests and record the data through a citizen science project called NestWatch.

Join us for a special program on these beautiful birds and learn how we check nests. We will have a guest ornithologist with us to help answer any questions. This is an adult program. No preregistration necessary. We will be out in the open so please dress for the weather — a hat and sunscreen are recommended. Also, please wear closed-toed shoes and bring a refillable water bottle. We will meet outside the classroom building, a short walk down the gravel path from the front entrance.
