Students learned how to train raptors in a workshop with the River Valley Raptors non-profit sponsored by the Wisconsin Center for Wildlife.

“I’ve never been more excited about something happening in a class in my life,” said Cinna Smallwood, University of Stevens Point senior.

That’s the kind of excitement River Valley Raptors Executive Director Abbey Krumrie said she hopes students experience.

“That moment that it kind of hits them and there like woah this is what I want to do,” said Krumrie.
