The Purple Martin tower in Boissevain was taken down in April as part of a plan to relocate the bird tower to a new location and now some maintenance is required before the tower goes back up.

For a number of years the purple martin tower stood at the corner of Mill Road and South Railway near the town sign.

Boissevain-Morton’s Head of Council Judy Swanson says it’s all part of a rejuvenation plan in the community. “We took down the tower and moving it but it will go back up by the turtle statue. Once we got the bird houses down we realized they needed a lot of fixing before they go back up. They haven’t been taken down or cleaned out for years.”

The bird houses will be going back up onto the tower.

“Unfortunately we’ve missed this year but I’ sure we’ll get the bird houses back up as quickly as possible. They’re made of metal so we’re looking for any volunteers to help fix these houses we’d be delighted and they would go back up as soon as possible” said Judy Swanson.
