Nest box programs at Maplewood Flats and Rocky Point (Port Moody) initiated in 1994 greatly contributed to the resurgence of Purple Martins in BC. Now, around 110 nest boxes are mounted every spring upon the return of the Purple Martins at Maplewood Flats. In 2019 it was estimated that there was nesting activity in around 86 nest boxes at the Maplewood Flats colony.
