The Raptors Rendezvous experience allows an up-close encounter with some of the Wye Marsh’s spectacular hawks, owls and falcons. This experience offers a personalized introduction to the amazing world of birds of prey and depending on the time of your program and your level of interest, you will get a behind the scenes peek at feeding, health-care, training, socialization and a behind the scenes tour of the facility. To top off this truly unique experience you will also be provided the opportunity to hold and witness the flight of some of Wye Marsh's Animal Ambassadors.
