Had a wonderful time, really catered to my one year old son. The one on one environment was great for learning about the birds. I got to go home and quiz my husband and really show off my new knowledge. The birds are beautiful, and the close up interaction will leave a lasting impression on both of us. Can’t wait to go again.

What You'll Get


The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature’s phone with today’s Groupon to West Coast Falconry in Marysville. Choose between the following options:

  • For $50, you get admission for one to a hawk walk (a $100 value).
  • For $50, you get a basic falconry lesson for two (a $100 value).<p>

Guided by the watchful eyes of master falconer Kate Marden, West Coast Falconry introduces avian enthusiasts to eagle owls, falcons, and hawks through an apprentice course, educational demonstrations, and aerial-raptor hunting displays. Nestled in the rolling Sierra foothills, up to eight students descend on the hawk walk to explore natural avian habitats and learn to spot and identify hawks in flight, at rest, and while picking up their dry cleaning. During the 90-minute walk, fledgling gloved game chasers can try casting and calling hawks to and from their fists.

In the basic falconry lesson, knowledgeable instructors pass on bird-handling techniques in a one-hour session designed to acquaint beginners with the majestic birds. In addition to learning about falconry history, habitats, and conservation efforts, pairs practice holding the hawks, casting them from gloves, and calling them back. For an extra fee, tagalong photographers capture shots of birds chasing down mice and then challenging them to games of chess.
