The Archives of Falconry occupies the Herrick Building overlooking a beautiful vista south of the Boise, Idaho. We share a campus with The Peregrine Fund who was our organizational home until we became an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) in 2021. We still share a lot with The Peregrine Fund including tours and events.

Currently The Archives does not have regular hours for public visitation, but we will accommodate requests for tours on a limited basis. Please call or email us at info@falconry.org, at least one week in advance. Staff will be available for scheduled tours between 12:00pm to 5:00pm, Wednesday through Saturday. We expect to be fully open with regular public hours by March 2022. Stay tuned!

Public Events at the Herrick Building

We usually host events every month, but are closed now due to the pandemic. Please join our mailing list and we will keep you updated.

Spring Rendezvous

Each spring we usually have a get together where people come from all over the country to talk falconry. Unfortunately, as it was in 2020, the Rendezvous is canceled for 2021. The next Rendezvous is tentatively scheduled for April 9th, 2022.

The Wall of Remembrance

The Wall of Remembrance honors those falconers no longer with us. The wall serves as a permanent record and location to honor the memory of a departed falconer among others who shared a passion for hawking.

Reopening in Spring of 2022

Sheikh Zayed Wing

The Sheikh Zayed Exhibit Wing was made possible by a generous gift from His Highness, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, in honor of his father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former President of the United Arab Emirates. The wing represents his father's great love of falconry and allows us to display memorabilia surrounding the long traditions of Bedu falconry and its contribution to all falconers' heritage.

The wing was initially dedicated at a celebration in 2006 and is currently undergoing a major renovation. Look for an announcement about the reopening of this exhibit in early 2022. Stay tuned!

Sheikh Zayed Wing

The Archives of Falconry received a grant from His Highness, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, to construct a new wing at The Archives in honor of his father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former President of the United Arab Emirates. The wing represents his father's great love of falconry and allows us to display memorabilia surrounding the long traditions of Bedu falconry and its contribution to all falconers' heritage. The exhibition housed in this wing is an immersive experience anchored by an enormous and authentic goat-hair hunting tent. The tent and all its traditional fittings, including wall-to-wall oriental carpets, cushions, and the complete accoutrements for roasting, grinding, brewing, and serving traditional Bedu coffee, were all donated by His Excellency, Mohamed Al Bowardi, the Managing Director of Abu Dhabi's Environmental Research and Wildlife Development Agency and a falconer himself through the generous support of Dr. Ken Riddle.

The wing was initially dedicated at a celebration in 2006 and is currently undergoing a major renovation to add interactive elements and more artifacts.
