Iowa State Fair Purple Martin Presentation

Date: August 10th

Time: 1:00 or 2:00 PM
Where: Des Moines, IA

Open to the Public: Yes

General Comments: Tim Gelder (DNR Walnut Woods State Park Ranger and martin enthusiast) and Dave Duit (Iowa Purple Martin Organization President) will be giving a presentation at the Iowa State Fair DNR building courtyard stage on Friday August 10th at 1:00 PM or 2:00 PM. It is important that you leave early to arrive by 1:00 PM. The area around the fairgrounds will be packed with traffic, so plan on making a day of it at the fair. There will be educational handouts. There will be other Iowa purple martin landlords, wannabes and beginners to share knowledge and experiences with martins . We will answer as many questions as we can relating to martins. The program will run about 45 minutes. Any questions can be directed to Dave Duit at dave@iamartin.org. Visit tis thread as the fair gets closer and I will give updated info on the exact start time.

Directions: Iowa State Fairgrounds, DNR building courtyard stage.

Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.
