New England Falconry is located on open meadows and forestland in beautiful Western Massachusetts. Federal and State permits allow us to provide you with the extraordinary opportunity to handle and free-fly a trained hawk.
You will experience the ancient art of falconry while learning about the life history of raptors, their role in the environment, and the efforts underway to ensure their survival and conservation.
Each activity is always unpredictable and exciting, especially the incomparable thrill of a raptor returning to your glove.
Participation in an activity at New England Falconry will not qualify you to be a falconer but you will gain a special insight into the challenges of falconry and the relationship between hawk and falconer.
Duration: 1.5 Hours
Free-fly hawks through fields and forest as you experience falconry and learn about the lives of raptors and their conservation.
