MINOCQUA - "I've always had a passion for the outdoors," said Predmore.
It's no surprise he's finishing up his third wildlife internship while putting his years in school to good use.
"Wanted to take my biology degree and not work in a lab."
Predmore spends his work days at the wildlife center rehabbing hurt animals and educating the public about wildlife.
"I've enjoyed every bit of it," said Predmore.
Saturday was no different; Predmore says kids came from all over the country got up close and personal with some wild animals at this year's fall open house.
"I want them to go away with a positive message [that they] can help animals too," said Predmore.
The Wildlife Center's open house helped pass that message on with tours of the rehab center and bird section, as well plenty of arts and crafts.
"Everything we are doing here today is educational," said Predmore.
