2022 Hawk Walk
If you've already attended the Experience, or, if you're familiar with birds of prey and are comfortable interacting with them, the Hawk Walk is an exciting next step. After an introduction to this ancient hunting craft, along with a review of proper falconry technique, we take a walk around The Hotel Hershey grounds with one of our Harris' Hawks following through the treetops and coming when called to the gloved hand.
Admission to the Hawk Walk is limited to no more than four and no fewer than two guests, ensuring plenty of flights to the glove.
The cost for the Hawk Walk is $150, and admission is by appointment November 1 - April 15. To schedule a Hawk Walk contact Master Falconer Jack Hubley: 717-575-0948; email@example.com.
