I absolutely loved this educational experience with gorgeous birds of prey. I had never been that close to owls, falcons and hawks before. And watching the teamwork between the bird and trainer was amazing. Highly recommend,

Our favorite activity at the Greenbrier we went twice on the same trip! The woman who runs it was fantastic. We learned so much hunting with these magnificent Harris hawks.

We had a small group so we were able to have the hands-on experience of having the hawk (in our case) land right onto our hand. Our trainer, Cody, was great, patient and very knowledgeable.

The Greenbrier offers both flat walking trails along the golf course and more challenging mountain side trails for all our guests to enjoy, The valley view trail would be perfect to walk at a pace to accommodate you.
