Hawk-Walks & Falconry Excursions

Imagine a walk through the Sonoran Desert with a pack of Harris’ hawks following. Let us be your guide. The Sonoran Desert is the most bio-diverse desert in the world. Our non-profit organization was founded to educate the world on its beauty and wildlife. If you’d be interested in experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, read on.

**All excursions are educational and tax deductible. Proceeds go toward our Title I school program, helping us bring the Sonoran Desert to disadvantaged youth.**



 May – Sept in the early am only if weather allows

We ARE scheduling hawk walks for the fall & winter online and by phone NOW!!!!

They call the Harris’ hawk the “wolves of the sky” because they are social raptors that hunt in packs. During a hawk-walk, you will be joined by one of our hawking teams in the beautiful McDowell Sonoran Preserve in Scottsdale, Arizona. Get maps for the McDowell Sonoran Preserve trailheads here.
