Hey martin landlords from Iowa. If you submitted a scout report, are a landlord interested in mentoring in the state of Iowa for the Iowa Purple Martin Organization please email me (dave@ iamartin.org) with your contact info. There is no space between the @ and iamartin.org. Our mentor program on the Iowa website is growing, but not nearly big enough for our Hawkeye / Cyclone state. It is easy to mentor and it makes a huge difference in growing the martin population. Also, if you know of someone who may want to be a member or mentor, please have them email me. This is a great volunteer opportunity to make a big difference. Our goal is to have at least one mentor in all of our great states 99 counties. Thanks.
Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.
