A great interactive taster session for younger owl lovers, this 45-minute encounter gives children aged between 4-14 the chance to fly an owl for themselves and experience the thrill of these silent, magnificent creatures landing on their arm.
The session begins with an introduction to Baytree Owl & Wildlife Centre, followed by a brief instruction in how to handle the birds. Children then get to don a glove and have a go at flying up to three members of our display team. We start with one of the smaller species, in order to help build their confidence, before progressing to larger owls to re-ignite their excitement all over again.
Upon purchase, you will be sent a voucher - with a period of validity for six months - within a blank gift card, should you wish to present it to the child as a gift. You can then redeem this voucher to book their encounter on a day of your choice. If desired, you may also book additional participants or spectators at this time.
The starting price is £25 for one child, or two for just £40, as shown in the table below. One free spectator is included so that the child's parent/guardian can attend, but additional spectator places are available for £5.00 per person.
|First Child||Second Child||Third Child||Fourth Child|
