Our first event of the summer is the Purple Martin tour at the Pic-Wil Nature Preserve this Saturday, June 27th, at 1:00. Barrington has the largest population of purple martins in the region and they are just arriving from their annual migration to their summer homes here. They require those special gourd-style bird houses to keep out predators. Bird expert Ray Marr will lead the event.
Pic-Wil is located on Washington Road and parking is available on Washington Road and nearby side streets Tallwood and Echo Drive. Hope to see you there!
