Falconer Eric Harrold will share his experience in the ancient practice known as “the sport of kings”. Falconry is the art and practice of hunting with trained birds-of-prey. He has more than 35 years since he began as an apprentice and has enjoyed flying red-tailed hawks, Harris’s hawks, Cooper’s hawks, and a prairie falcon. The topics covered will be regulations, hawks vs falcons, and the different opportunities in falconry, which is just one of the ways Eric has found to be connected to the natural world. After Eric’s presentation, there will be a chance for attendees to ask questions.

Pre-registration is appreciated.
