BOISE, Idaho – Enjoy music, sunshine and beautiful birds of prey at two free outdoor concerts to benefit The Peregrine Fund on July 8 and July 15.
The Thursday concerts at the Boise Spectrum will be held from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. in the courtyard near Edwards 21 Cinemas at the intersection of Cole and Overland roads. Music will be provided by classic rock band Pilot Error on July 8 and bluegrass/punk/folk band Old Man Markley on July 15.
Live birds of prey will be on display beginning at 5:30 p.m. both nights. The Peregrine Fund will sell $2 raffle tickets for prizes, such as gift certificates, movie passes, artwork and T-shirts. A grand prize raffle drawing at the July 15 concert will include a cash prize. Everyone signing up for or renewing a $25 membership will receive 15 raffle tickets. Those buying or renewing a $50 membership will receive a "wingspan" of raffle tickets (hold out your arms and get that many tickets).
Money raised at the concerts will benefit The Peregrine Fund and the World Center for Birds of Prey, located at the south end of Cole Road. Visitors can enjoy bird demonstrations and interactive displays at the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center as well as art, sculpture and exhibits at the Archives of Falconry.
