The staff was very knowledgeable and experienced. The birds were well taken of. One of the best parts of our California vacation for 2018. If you have any interest in raptors you should come here to learn and experience them in-depth.

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.
