What a busy day!

Approximately 38 Lowe’s employees, including some of their kids, took time off today to improve the Zoo!

Representing the Brockport, Greece, Henrietta, Macedon and Webster stores, they are getting our “to do” list done! New bricks and base at Eagle’s Landing, new signage boards, new storage sheds, new shingles, painting and much more. All products and time are donated.

An essential part of any lesson! Click here to watch the video.
