Purple Martin Awareness Week Lake Ouachita State Park

Admission: Most programs free; Lake Tours $9 adults, $5 kids ages 6-12

Meeting Place: Visitor Center

Experience one of the most remarkable gatherings of Purple Martins in the United States.  We will have programs to help you identify these large swallows and show you how you can help protect them by putting up martin houses.  Each night, we will take a tour boat out to Bird Island to view 25,000 to 50,000 Purple Martins as they come in to roost on this tiny island.  They’re only here for a few weeks each year, so don’t miss your opportunity to see this spectacular display.  Space is limited on the tours; make reservations early by calling the park.
