Purple Martin - Training and Intro for Nest Keepers

The City of Lake Geneva Avian Committee has a colony of new Purple Martin Houses.  

If you are interested in volunteering to be a nest-keeper, please sign up (below) to come to our Introduction and Training session.  This will be a one-hour hands-on demonstration of how the Purple Martin houses operate and what volunteers do to check in on the nests, eggs, and birds. 

The Introduction and Training Session for Purple Martin Nest Keepers will be

Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm.
Meet in Lake Geneva Public Library Lobby (918 W Main St)
Wear appropriate outdoor clothing.  We will be working outside at the houses.

If we need to reschedule due to bad weather, we will use the sign-up sheet to send you a notice.    

If you are interested in volunteering but cannot attend this session, please write a comment in the RSVP section.

We will review the "job description" for nest keepers at the training.  However, in general, volunteers are needed who can check the nest boxes in the houses for nests, hatchings, and the general welfare of the birds.  Volunteers will be asked to visit the houses a couple of times a week during the heat of the day, crank down the houses and check on the nests, and report key events.

Date: 04/18/2019 (Thu.)

Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT

Location: Lobby - Lake Geneva Public Library
