About the Minnesota Falconer’s Association
Founded in 1971, the Minnesota Falconers Association has been involved in falconry and raptor conservation for over 40 years. In that time our members have played a key role in many falconry events across the country including the reintroduction of the Peregrine Falcon and the placement of the state and federal regulations. We have also provided support via fundraisers and a considerable amount of personal involvement. Currently, MFA members continue to support the Midwest Peregrine Society and The Raptor Center in their continuing conservation efforts with the proceeds from our annual game dinner and volunteer time. We are committed to practicing the sport of falconry with the highest ethical standards upholding the traditions of old while creating a path for future generations.
