The Portage Lakes Purple Martin Association is an organization dedicated to helping the Purple Martins feed, breed, and interact with the environment to the best of their bird ability. We’re happy to have them in Portage Lakes, Ohio and do our best to make them feel welcome.
Many groups help us in our objectives. We have a large number of gourd homes maintained by our members.
- feed the birds when the weather is inclement and they’re unable to fend for themselves
- we band them when appropriate
- we have a number of activities and lectures throughout the year.
Benefits for members include opportunities to help us educate the public about the Purple Martins of the Portage Lakes, what they do for us and how we encourage public enjoyment of these beautiful birds.
A very special THANK YOU to the Portage Lakes Advisory Council (PLAC) for their generous contribution to Portage Lakes Purple Martins
Association recently. Their contribution will assist in our providing educational opportunities to schools, organizations and the general public. We sincerely appreciate their support!
Twilight Boat Ride Purple Martin Migration Tour
Every year from August through mid-September tens of thousands of Purple Martins flock to local Nimisila Reservoir in Green Ohio, to settle in the reeds overnight as they prepare for migration back to South America. The PLPMA offers Twilight Boat Rides from early August through Labor Day to experience this wonder of nature. Cost is $35 per person and Reservations are REQUIRED.
Our two-hour narrated tour will include the history of Nimisila with opportunities to see Eagles, Osprey, Herons, Cormorants, and many other birds and wildlife who call the area home. Nimisila offers spectacular sunsets to enjoy as you wait for the birds to gather. The aerial show is something you really need to see.
For any booking questions or problems, please call or text Greer Langkamp, PLPMA Secretary at 330-388-6820 or email at email@example.com
