We did  the private raptor outing and got to interact with the falcons and owls. The tour leaders were very knowledgeable and friendly and the property itself is beautiful. I'd love to go back and do this again and see the hawks next time!

Excellent very educational and entertaining. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The staff knew how to organize the event so everyone was given the opportunity to participate with the hawk.
