Join Wingard’s Naturalist and USCG Captain Zach for a pontoon tour of the largest purple martin roost in North America… right here on Lake Murray. Zach has been all over the United States, and even to Brazil, studying this migratory songbird. You’re sure to enjoy this morning outing with Captain Zach, who is undeniably the most knowledgeable tour guide on the lake. The martins leave the island at dawn each morning for their day of insect hunting and training their newborns for the long flight to Brazil in the Fall. We have scheduled four early Saturday morning tours to watch the martins take off from the island at sunrise.
Morning Sessions are at 5:30am
