This center provided in depth information and history of falconry with examples of live birds of prey. The staff were very knowledgeable and we learned quite a lot about this sport and its origins in the middle east and in early America and of course conservation efforts and management.

We had visited the home of the Peregrine Fund several years ago and with some extra time in Boise decided to return. A good idea. There is a self-guided outdoor trail that explains the interdependence of flora and fauna - without native plants there are no little animals therefor no food for the raptors. Nice view across the valley. Wish... More

We had a day to visit sites around Boise. Went to the center of birds of prey. Really nice that they had a good variety of birds. Lots of birds we have never seen or even knew existed so that was really good. The 2 Condors were very active and we sat and watched them for quite a while. The... More

Visitors learn from live bird presentations throughout the day. Knowledgeable guides explain the heritage of falconry amid exhibits of birds of prey habitat.

Great place for kids of any age. Make sure you go when they are having tours of the re-creation of a middle east birds of prey camp. I am coming back in the fall for the birds of prey exhibitions in the amphitheater.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we took our son (26 and visiting from out-of-state) to experience the World Center for Birds of Prey. We were all impressed with their passion for the birds and their knowledge. In the indoor amphitheater, we got to see a staff member holding Gus, who I think was an Aplomado Falcon. It was a sight to... More

Idaho's World Center for Birds of Prey Is an impressive learning, conservation and rehabilitation facility for raptors from all over our planet. If you're a birder, this is a definite must see. If you have children you want exposed to Naure, this is a must- see. If you have any interest at all in learning something new about those fierce... More

We have made several trips to this location and have yearly membership to support them. It's especially fun in the fall when they have their flight demonstrations. They bring a few individuals out and allow us to see some of the flight and other behaviors that are natural to the species. It is also interesting to see other live species... More
