Private  Falconry Experience

Our Falconry Experience is perfect for those who want a private experience just for your family or group.

PLEASE NOTE:  THIS IS A TWO PARTICIPANT REQUIRED EXPERIENCE

Experience Highlights

  • First, delve into the rich ancient history between humans and raptors in our Tudor style classroom. Here you will be exposed to the equipment, training techniques, natural history,  conservation, and the care and management of raptors.

  • You will then be fitted with your gauntlet as you learn how to call a raptor to you!

  • With nature as our classroom, experience the thrill of partnering with a raptor as each participant has the opportunity to have a bird of prey fly to your gloved arm!

  • Witness the aerial acrobatics from some of the fastest animals on our planet.

  • Gain knowledge on current issues facing these spectacular predators and learn some simple solutions you can participate in to ensure their future existence.

 

Details Unique to this Experience

  • This experience is for your group only. NO unknown guests  will join in your experience.

  • An unforgettable opportunity to fly one of our falcons.
