Come learn about Purple Martins, why they need protection, and how to become a Purple Martin landlord by setting up your own colony of Martin Houses.
Every Purple Martin you see flying around Bomb Island on Lake Murray in the summer was born in a birdhouse. Since they no longer nest naturally, they need us to put up housing for them to nest and raise their young in.
There is a $10 fee for this workshop. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. Register online or call 803-359-9091. You will receive a $5 coupon and $5 will be donated to Purple Martin conservation.
