Fall Flights outdoor flight shows Boise Idaho

Experience the majesty of raptors in free flight!

Join us at The Peregrine Fund's World Center for Birds of Prey to see our education birds do what they do best -- FLY! Watch as they swoop and soar over your head to show off their amazing aerial skills. This is your best opportunity to get up-close to a hawk, falcon, vulture, or owl as they glide sometimes only inches above your head!

Our raptor trainers and education staff will showcase the natural flight behavior of birds of prey. Each 30 - 45 minute demonstration is narrated to help you learn about the exciting lives of these sky hunters! Children love the high-energy activity of the speeding falcons. Photographers will enjoy the opportunity to photograph the raptors as they fly within close proximity. Bird watchers will marvel to see some of the less common species such as the Aplomado Falcon. Whatever your reason, make sure you mark your calendar today so you don't miss out on one of Boise's favorite fall family traditions!

  • When: 3 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from September 21 through November 3, 2019.

Please arrive NO LATER THAN 2:30 for seating, but be aware that we may sell out before that time, especially on Saturdays.

  • General Admission: $10 adults, $8 seniors, $5 youth 4-16, free to members and children 3 and younger.
  • Special Event Charge: This year there will be an additional event charge of $2 per visitor. These funds will be dedicated to growing our flight programs. This fee is waived for members.

Enjoy scenic views of the Treasure Valley in our outdoor venue – with a wheelchair-friendly surface – and be prepared to sit on sandstone for 45 minutes to one hour (seating pads and blankets in cool weather encouraged). Seating pads will be available for Peregrine Fund members.

Seating is limited.
We anticipate many shows will sell out, so arrive early to purchase your wrist band that will allow you entry into the show. Once the program begins there will be no late admissions.

Shows are weather permitting.

If heavy rains, high winds, or extreme temperatures are forecasted, we will need to cancel the show. Cancellation announcements will be made on this webpage at 10:00 a.m. the day of the cancelled performance. The Visitor's Center will remain open even if a show is cancelled to provide you the opportunity to see some of the show's stars up-close and indoors.

It's a great time to be a member!
