Welcome to the GLFA Website

What is the Great Lakes Falconers' Association?

The Great Lakes Falconers Association (GLFA) was founded in 1962 by a handful of local Illinois falconers. GLFA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to our native birds of prey and to the sport of falconry. Our officers draw no salaries and we operate on volunteer energy. 

GLFA is very active in falconry legislative efforts at not only the state level but also in cities and municipalities across Illinois. Our club sponsors picnics, flight demos, a game dinner and group hunting parties. We are involved in educating the public by manning booths at fairs, conducting lectures for interested groups such as scouts, bird groups, schools, or others. We accept interviews for news publications and magazines in order to educate people about falconry. All GLFA activities are family oriented, as many families are directly involved in the sport of falconry.
