Purple Martin Madness!

Each summer during the last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August, sunset education programs are offered at the new Bebops Pier on the northwest footfall of the Old Manns Harbor Bridge (the Manns Harbor side).

Join us to learn about the martins natural history and migration, why they roost at the bridge and experience the mind-blowing phenomenon of being amongst 100,000+ purple martins in flight at sunset over the beautiful Croatan Sound!

Bring bug spray. A spotting scope or binoculars will enhance your experience but are not required.

We meet on each Thursday of the last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August, at 7:30 PM.

Please call us for additional information. We are looking forward to meeting you!
