I've taken each of my 4 grandchildren to the beginning falconry class at two different times and they each loved the experience of having a real live falcon on their arm - up close and personal. They learned a lot from the demonstrations and the history, biology, and behavioral life of birds of prey information presented. My two grandchildren that... More

Fantastic experience. Kate and Jana were most knowledgeable and created a great experience for all of us. What a treat to have a Hawk fly onto your arm. We want to go back soon and do one of their other programs.

We had a great time here with our group of 4. Very nice hosts. Lots of great birds and we never felt rushed. The surrounding area was beautiful in the spring.

My wife celebrated her birthday with her daughters at West Coast Falconry and had an incredible time. Both trainers were incredibly knowledgeable and thorough on their information and tour. My wife was so excited to be able to fulfill one of her dreams to hold a hawk and have it land on her arm. Thank you for the great experience... More

The experience our family had this past weekend will never be forgotten and will be talked about often, forever. What an impact! EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect. Our two adult sons surprised their dad with the Hawk Walk experience for a birthday gift. He said, afterwards, it was the best birthday gift ever. Jana was gracious, considerate, kind, polite, respectful, and... More

We learned a lot about falcons and hawks in a short time. It was wonderful to dispel my misconceptions about falconry in general. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about understanding, saving and protecting birds. They provide useful services with their birds to farmers and other businesses. I highly recommend attending the program that interests you. I'm pretty sure I'll... More
