CITIZENS UNITED HOSTS 15th ANNUAL PURPLE MARTIN SPECTACULAR IN MAURICE RIVER TOWNSHIP

 

CU MAURICE RIVER and partnering organizations will be hosting the Purple Martin Spectacular.  The last few years have drummed up so much interest that we have added on two more cruises this year. The dates for 2016 are on August 11th, 12th, 13th,18th, 19th, and 21st

Join us aboard the Bonanza II and cruise down the Wild & Scenic Maurice River in search of Purple Martin flocks. Purple Martins have been using the Maurice River as a staging site for their fall migration for over a decade. CU Maurice River member and Purple Martin expert, Allen Jackson, will be on board to explain habits of these birds as well as the ins and outs of their fall migration. True to the event’s name, this natural phenomenon has undoubtedly been spectacular in the past.  Last year Allen estimated there were over 1 million birds gathered on the marshes of the Maurice.  We have our fingers crossed our southbound friends don’t disappoint this year.

No matter how many Purple Martins show up, we will enjoy an informative sunset cruise on the Bonanza II.  CU Maurice River hopes to share this spectacle with residents of the region and other nature enthusiasts. Naturalists from CU Maurice River and NJ Audubon will be on board identifying and explaining points of natural and cultural interest. There will also be a selection of refreshments and desserts on board.

We will meet at the Longreach Marina at 6:15PM and depart at 6:30PM, rain or shine.  Seats do fill up. So, reservations are a must.Tickets are $40.00 per person. Payments will be received in advance.  Please contact Doreen Homan at (856) 300-5331 or Emaildoreen.homan@cumauriceriver.org to reserve your spot.
