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.

Hands on interaction with the birds

Oct 14, 2014 John California, United States

I must admit that I've always had an interest in big birds and read a little on Falconry, however lacking any firsthand experience, West Coast Falconry's' Hawk Walk was one of the most remarkable introductions to predators that are not normally amenable to human contact, my wife and I have ever had! Interfacing with was amazing!!!

The staff's dedication to their work is amazing, and they are doing a great public service allowing the general public an opportunity to intersect with the beautiful wild natural world so easily taken for granted in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We can't thank them enough... and we'll be back for their 3 day intensive...
