Staff is very knowledgeable about falcons and falconry, and the hands on experience was awesome.

Amazing! We were very impressed with the amount of information we learned about the habits of hawks, how they are trained, and how they are cared for. Our falconer was a fabulous instructor. And of course, it was fun to have these large birds landing on our outstretched hands!

This was a really fun, novel experience, up close with a magnificent, beautiful bird. The staff are very professional, and extremely knowledgable Their delivery is polished, and the experience was exhilarating. The scenery is very rural, very pretty. We plan to return for the owl experience or the hawk walk.

So much else to see and do within an hour or two of the falconry, so make a weekend of it. We did, and it was worth every penny.
