Taking a lesson

New England Falconry’s staff includes professional falconers who provide guests with a wealth of knowledge of this ancient pastime and an interactive hands-on encounter with these magnificent birds of prey. This ancient sport of kings has been in existence for over 4,000 years, and it is both fascinating and exciting for individuals and the entire family. The content of the sessions will include details about raptor adaptations, conservation, and history of falconry as well as free flying sessions with Harris’s hawks.
