Free Flight

Since the age of 7, Dr. Robert Stonebreaker shared a special affinity with all birds. Wanting to bring people closer to his feathered friends, he lent his passion to Free Flight in 1989, helping evolve the avian boarding and breeding center into a sanctuary where visitors could interact with the exotic creatures. Amid open air and emerald palm fronds, guests can let a yellow, orange, and green sun Conure perch on their arm or pet a Cockatoo. The tropical oasis includes a koi pond, where schools of shimmering Koi swim under the flaps and calls of colorful Macaws.

Dr. Stonebraker tragically passed away in 2010, but the team at Free Flight has upheld his tireless work by fostering human-avian relations and furthering visitors' understanding of parrots. Free Flights also encourages involvement through donation, membership, volunteer opportunities, and, most notably, education programs.

Customer Reviews

I was surprised at how closely we were encouraged to interact with the birds. There was a beautiful variety of birds and our children loved how expressive and how much personality some of them exhibited! The staff were good about answering our questions. There was very limited signage so be sure to ask questions because then it's quite educational as well as very interesting!
