Immersive, hands-on experience with our EXOTIC birds of prey
The session starts with an in-depth, up-close and fascinating introduction to our birds of prey, safely tethered on the grass, and their spiritual and practical purposes. You will learn all about their individual superpowers and role in falconry and how to identify them in the wild!
Next you participate in the mind-blowing and heart-stopping flying/handling experience on our adjoining 7-acre field, showing our falconry birds as they are trained/flown in this 7,000-yr-old tradition where man and apex predator hunt together. The entire experience is as magical an event as you can have!
Everyone gets a chance to handle the birds and fly the ones we are currently flying. For those too young or afraid, you still get to see them up close and personal. Given the handling of the birds, we cannot allow participants under the age of 6 years old without prior approval.
Our classes take place outdoors. BRING water, sun block and bug spray. We have a strict dress-code in place for the birds’ wellbeing. Wear neutral color clothing, no skirts or billowing fabric, nothing fuzzy or furry. NO BRIGHT COLORS, neon anything, pink, red, orange. Wear greys, dark blues, brown, black.
