The hawks were surprisingly approachable, under the staff's careful guidance. Very cool!

Hands on with a Harris' hawk.

The staff! You never felt rushed, always entertained and they let you have your moment with the birds.

It was extremely cool being that close to a bird of prey.

Everything! It was an incredible experience. I plan to go back just as soon as I can to do the hawk walk. Can't wait!

I have shared the experience my family had with about 10 people. Several if them are planning to visit. I will also be sharing the center with my sons high school. Their mascot is a Falcon! I hope they will have the very knowledgable ladies and their great sense of humor come for a presentation.

The instructors were personable, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. They obviously respect and love the birds they work with. They were full of all sorts of info for folks who are interested in birds and in falconry, and imparted it in a comfortable, conversational, sometimes amusing, way. the setting was perfect, being on a lovely sun-dappled lawn. The birds were awesome.

I definitely want to go back for the "Walk in the Woods" program, where you go out in a small group (up to 6) and watch the birds work.
