Since 1983, the Virginia Falconers’ Association has been a group of passionate, diverse folks who share a common enterprise: falconry and a love for birds of prey and their environments. We work closely with our governing agency, the Dpt. of Game and Inland Fisheries, to keep falconry relevant, legal, accessible, and ethical. Among our primary group activities are field meets (both members-only & invitational), working with the DGIF, and educational activities & presentations.
The group, made up of volunteers only, has a variety of events, efforts, trainings, and happenings underway all year. Specifically, there are three open-to-the-public events annually, held: The third weekend of January; the third weekend of February; and the third weekend of August. Updates for each are posted on our Facebook page as well as on this website.
