Purple Martin Roost Watch

Every year in preparation for their migration south the Purple Martins Gather by the thousands along the shore at dusk. Join the Park Naturalists at the North Pier to watch the Purple Martins fly into the roost for the evening. The Naturalists will share some history of the North Pier and interpret the journey the Purple Martins take every year. There is no fee or registration for this event.

Programming is subject to modification or cancellation at the discretion of park staff. If you need an accommodation to participate in Park activities due to a disability, please contact Presque Isle State Park at 814-833-7424 to make arrangements for your visit. With at least three days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs. Please call the Erie ASL Interpreters’ Office at (814) 806-2511 for more information about this service.
