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.
