Flushing, N.Y. – June 16, 2016 – Mets players James Loney and Matt Reynolds joined about a dozen fifth graders from P.S. 143Q, Corona, in making enrichment buckets for the zoo’s Andean bears. The buckets were filled with various fruits such as watermelon slices that were then frozen and placed in their exhibit by zookeepers. Treats such as this are often given to the bears to provide a stimulating activity that helps keep them active and healthy.
