Purple Martins 101

Cantigny Golf
Saturday, June 29, 7:30 am

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 entrance drive to Purple Martin Place. A folding chair, bottled water and sunscreen are recommended.

For this event only, please register directly with the organizer. Send an email to jreiter@cantigny.org with “PM 101” on the Subject line. Participation is limited to 25.
