Stephen and Margaret Dubiel Lakewood Urban Bird Fund

Help restore the Celeste Purple Martin House to its former glory in Lakewood Park.

The Celeste Purple Martin House is home to a breeding colony of Purple Martins that return from Lakewood Park from South America each April. The Martins fill the park with their beautiful songs and treat visitors to dazzling displays of aerial acrobatics as they hunt flying insects over the lakefront. However, 45+ years of Lakewood weather has taken its toll on Mr. Dubiel’s masterpiece and it is badly in need of restoration. The winch system in the pole supporting the house that is needed for regular maintenance is also broken and in need of repair.
