The Purple Martin will support itself by successfully serving as an exceptional ecofriendly nature center, lakeside inn, business retreat, and meeting facility.

The Purple Martin will continue to establish itself within the Rogers City community by sponsoring innovative outreach programs that benefit children, the environment, and the local economy. For example:

The Purple Martin will unveil a memorable manifestation of its vision this August. Foster children, reunited with their siblings, will share in enjoying a weekend camping event in Northern Michigan.


Continuing programs that give Christmas and Back-to-School gifts to local and foster children...


Launching a Memorial Day MartinMania benefit designed to attract tourists and showcase the annual arrival of the endangered colony of purple martins that now call this their summer home...

Campfires, nature walks, chasing lightning bugs, and other fun-filled activities will compliment programs about preserving and conserving natural resources and building self-esteem.

By working in harmony with nature, The Purple Martin will demonstrate practical, self-sustaining methods, eco-friendly green practices, and lakefront conservation. Grants and private donations will also subsidize a wide range of special events and educational programs designed to manifest the vision of The Purple Martin.

Local children will gain a renewed awareness of simple summertime joys, seen through the eyes of their visitors.
