Greetings and Salutations to all falconers and those Raptor Enthusiasts that are interested in pursuing the sport.

The Michigan Hawking Club has some wonderful information about the Falconry Workshop that is targeted for apprentice and pre-apprentice basics. We currently have a few people registered, but if you want to attend, or if you have an aspiring falconer friend, please urge them to register on the website as we need the number of attendees in advance to ensure there is enough materials, food, and handouts for all without having extras. You can also click the link below to access the full Event Calendar notice and register! Register soon to secure your spot at the Workshop, as space is limited.
