Half & Full Day Workshops and Three Day Courses
For those who wish to investigate falconry more seriously, we offer half day or full day falconry workshops and three day courses as an introduction to the art and science of falconry. Instruction is provided so an interested person can get involved and start to gain basic experience with the goal of becoming an apprentice and eventually a general class falconer. These workshops and courses cover history, laws & regulations, equipment, ethics, the birds themselves, the time & effort required and real-world commitment needed to enter into this very special vocation. This is a good introduction into understanding not only the birds and their care but also the genuine reality behind falconry in the modern world. For those who wish to go further, this is ample background information to allow the sincere potential apprentice the resources to contact a sponsor and begin the journey.
Courses are available as one-on-one meetings or group lectures.
Reservations and pre payment are required. Signed liability waiver required. Locations may vary.
