Purple Martins 101

Cantigny Golf
7:30 am

Come and learn about a special bird that calls Cantigny Golf home, the purple martin. Cantigny volunteer and “martineer” Ray Feld will share his expertise and answer questions during a short presentation. He will then lower one of the martin “hotels” and give us a peak at some nestlings.

Please park in the lower lot of Cantigny Golf (27w270 Mack Road). Parking is free. At 7:30 we’ll walk across the main entrance drive to Purple Martin Place. Feel free to bring a folding chair. Bottled water and sunscreen are recommended.
