The boys age 9 and 11 had a great time and learned a lot.

Apr 13, 2014 Michael California, United States

Besides the beautiful countryside, it was wonderful seeing a variety of birds of prey. We also were able to interact with a Harris Hawk named Tikka. She flew two our arms then away to another class participant. The two ladies who worked with us were very friendly and knowledgeable. An excellent adventure.

There were options for further adventures and even apprenticeships.
