The Ontario Purple Martin Association is hosting the first ever Ontario Purple MartinFest !!!! :grin:

We are excited to be having our first (of many, we hope!) Purple Martin Festival!

Saturday, July 7, 2018, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. (Rain or Shine)
Colchester Harbour Park, 100 Jackson Street, Colchester, Ontario (near Harrow).

Admission is FREE - but we are welcoming donations to the local Food Bank!

Our event will take place within the sights and sounds of an active Purple Martin Colony. We will have speakers covering topics such as:

- How to attract Purple Martins to your property
- How to identify Purple Martins and other Swallow species
- How to become a successful Purple Martin landlord
- How and why of supplemental feeding
- and more !

And, weather permitting, we will be doing some banding!

There will be some vendor booths as well, and an area devoted to fun and learning activities for the kids!
