Masters Of The Skies
- FALCONRY CLASSES
Unlike other places where you simply watch someone hold a bird of prey on their glove, we are uniquely licensed with the USFWS to give the public a hands-on experience with our birds. Our falconry class will teach you the basics of raptors behavior and husbandry and will explain the need for their protection and conservation. You will get the chance to hold the birds on your falconry gauntlet and you will experience the unique thrill of having them free-fly from your glove and back to you. A very memorable experience for all people from all walks of life. Locations vary.
- EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH PROGRAM
Our main educational outreach program includes a PowerPoint slide presentation and features a close encounter with at least three of our birds. This program introduces the public to falconry, the sport of Kings, as well as the natural history and biology of our local raptors species. Time is always allotted for a Q&A session at the end of the presentation. Everyone is welcome to come see the birds up close and take their picture. This program is about 60 minutes long and can be customized to meet your needs and keep your audience engaged, whether you are a public or private institution, a school, library, summer camp, 4-H club, wildlife refuge, church, retirement community, etc.
- MEET & GREET
Masters Of The Skies also offers another type of educational program in the form of a more informal "meet and greet" with at least one of our birds. This program is popular with places such as hotels and resorts, libraries, conventions, fairs, business events and other types of crowded gatherings. People get to spend as long as they want around our birds and are welcome to ask questions and take pictures.
- RAPTOR PHOTOGRAPHY AND DRAWING SESSION
This program has been designed especially for the photographers and artists who are looking for a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our birds, learn some interesting facts about them and get the chance to photograph or draw them in a natural setting. This program can be conducted indoor or outdoor.
We are proud to offer our educational programs in English, French and soon in Spanish.
