there was three of us, all of us were delighted with the style, humor and knowledge of the instructors. We had a great time, did both the falcons/hawks and the class on owls. I recommend both, which is a morning and afternoon class. Bring a sandwich and enjoy all the other birds talking to you between classes.

I think everyone should try this once, it's very simple and lets you get close to birds you usually only see in the sky. I think this would make a great gift for both mom or dad. Everyone there loved it.

We are three 60 year old women. We took both classes, in the morning falconry, and the afternoon class was the owls. I can't tell you which is better, because both were great. The two instructors were knowledgeable, funny and very professional. All of us agreed that this was worth every penny, and we plan to go back for the falcon hike. Each class was about 2 hours. If you go...don't forget your camera.

I think this event is great for every age from 7 to 100, if you are looking for the unique gift to give...this is it. There is nothing hard to accomplish, no climbing, the birds are gentle, and the instructors are very relaxed and are natural educators. They accommodated us by letting us take as many pictures as we needed. All of us found that when you tell someone you are going to do falconry...they are surprised....and then want to go as well.

Great experience. Totally recommend for anyone.

The instructors did such a great job. They are really outgoing and the entire program was highly educational. It's such an empowering experience when a hawk lands on your wrist after you call it to you. This is a must-do activity for anyone interested in birds of prey!

The narration and education was top-notch! The ability to view and learn about owls this close is an amazing opportunity that can't be missed.
