Introduction to Falconry Experience

Spend half a day with us and experience a glimpse into the life of a falconer!

Introduction to Falconry

3 Hour Duration  •   Adult (18+)  $95.00        Youth (8 - 17)  $70.00

If you are interested in the art of Falconry and want to learn more, or see if it is a lifestyle you are interested in pursuing, or even if you are just looking for a great outdoor session for the family, the Introduction to Falconry experience is for you! 


What to Expect
We invite you to experience some of the many jobs of a falconer as you join us for half day experience. You will learn about creating and managing equipment for a raptor, prepare food, track down a lost bird by telemetry and more!

There is a 10 to 15 minute break in the middle of the session for restroom and refreshment break. Please bring along a snack or something to drink if you wish!

At end of our three hour session, you join us with a free flying hawk which is called to the fist in our flight yard!

 

This is a great starting point for anyone interested in learning more about the process of becoming a falconer in Ontario! While this session is not designed to make you a falconer, it is designed to help give you a better understanding of the lifestyle, licensing process and commitment before you dive into an apprenticeship.
