Overview
A GROUP of attendees are given the opportunity for a unique experience into the life of a Raptor with an up close and personal encounter with Hawks, Falcons and Owls.

With the assistance of a licensed Falconer, you will learn the biology, conservation, field identification, traits, behaviors, natural history, and the importance of raptors.

Following a brief instruction guests will be fitted with a gauntlet and join a trained Hawk on a short walk – witness the agility and skill as she flies from perch to perch while swooping back to the Falconer’s gauntlet.

Our group was just two people. A full walk with TWO falcons, multiple opportunities to watch them feed on top your arm - including plenty of selfies with them on your arm. Everyone's questions answered about Raptors, Falcons, Owls, and Falconry. We ended with an extended period of photos with an owl and hawk. They even had sunscreen and drinks included in addition to snacks! Wortht he time and money.

This was without a doubt the highlight of our entire week! There aren't words to adequately express how awesome the experience was. Kathleen was very knowledgeable, safety-concious, and obviously cares deeply for these birds. We learned a lot, and having such a personal experience with these intelligent and majestic birds was absolutely incredible! Go, you won't regret it!

If you're an animal and nature lover, or even if you're just curious, this experience is a must. Being in the presence of such magnificent and beautiful animals makes this such an amazing once in a lifetime experience. Add to that, the ability to touch and look up close into the eyes of some of natures formidable predators, paired with all the knowledge and education Kathleen provides and you have yourself the ingredients to an experience you'll never forget! Do yourself a favor, and book this trip.

What a great experience. First of all, I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I was half way through the experience when I realized what falconry is. I thought falconry meant owning falcons. But not so. And if you don't know what it is, then, this experience is for you! I learned so much. Kathleen was our guide and she is amazing! She also has a lot of patience. People were constantly entering the facility but she was very professional handling our visit and the "interlopers". I fell in love in each of the raptors. They are definitely well cared and loved. Very beautiful creatures. This is not your "boring elementary school" presentation. A must do adventure if you are in Reno.
