  • It was really an amazing experience. The birds are in excellent form and condition and that is a credit to the team. Immediately could tell the care of the birds are put first. We went out with Daelyn and found him very patient and informative. The team are courteous and polite. The location and access on beautiful grounds increases the experience. Definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys a different aspect of a stroll through the woods.
  • An incredible experience that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Joe lead our group. He is so knowledgeable and made us all feel at ease throughout the entire hawk walk. I almost stayed back because I didn’t know if I would enjoy it enough. I was so grateful that I changed my mind. Beyond what I expected!
