About the Event

Falconry  is an ancient interaction and working relationship between man and  animal.  It has been practiced in some form in nearly every corner of  the globe for centuries.   This is a unique, up close and personal "hands on" experience with a  bird of prey.  you will accompany a licensed falconer and learn about  the ancient sport of falconry.  Then you will have the opportunity to  handle the raptor and experience the exhilaration of having this  magnificent bird perch on your gloved fist.  It will be a truly  unforgettable experience.

Presenter:   Peter Kipp-duPont has been training birds of prey since he was 12 years old and is celebrating 52 years as  a falconer in 2022.  He became a licensed master Falconer in 1981 as  well as one of the first Raptor Rehabilitators in Western NC.
