*Class groups are small with plenty of room for groups to maintain distance comfort. 

*Staff will don masks when approaching guests within 5-6 feet as in adjusting a bird or putting meat on a guests’ glove. Guests are encouraged to wear masks when in close proximity to others.

*Leather gauntlets are washed and sanitized after each class.

*Guests are required to wash/sanitize their hands before the start of class.


Our Legendary Ancient Hunting Tradition

West Coast Falconry is your premier Northern California resource for a full range of hands-on falconry classes and services.

Owner and Master Falconer, Kate Marden, invites you to join her and the staff at the West Coast Falconry Center to get a glimpse inside this incredible and ancient hunting tradition. Our classes and experiences are for falconers and non-falconers alike where you can actually work hands-on with our birds of prey.

We are also the first in the state to offer an apprentice seminar that helps prepare you to become a licensed falconer. Choose the falconry experience that best suits your level of interest or your particular need.

You will find that our educational demonstrations can be tailored to suit any size and age group. Everyone enjoys watching a spectacular aerial display of a raptor in flight or even a close-up, face-to-face encounter!
