The way the handlers and the birds interacted.

This is a must do. Beautiful birds and a great cause

Seeing the hawk's grip on the lure - they are wicked strong!

The instructors are friendly, knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about falconry, and the birds are awesome up close. Located in a bucolic cleft off of a Marysville country road, the entire experience was simple and perfect.

The trainers were incredibly knowledgeable! It was super fun to hold the birds, but it was also wonderful to learn about their evolution, natural history, and behaviors. It was a learning experience, in every way possible!
