Mountainside Medical Equipment press release below:
“June 28th, 2013 – Mountainside Medical Equipment and the Utica Zoo have officially decided to partner up together and form a lasting relationship that involves an initiative to aid in the revitalization of the nearly century old zoo.
In a recent visit to the Utica Zoo, the Mountainside Team was treated to a veritable wonderland of animals and exhibits. Executive Director Andria Heath and Communications Director Daniee Hurlbert led us in a comprehensive tour of zoo facilities, curators, animals, ongoing development, and dreams.
Currently, the Utica Zoo is home to a diverse array of species, as well as attractions including Zebras, Red Pandas, and California Sea Lions. Included in the list of offerings, the Zoo is also home to the record setting Watering Can sculpture donated by the Former Mayor of Utica, Ed Hanna.
Recent years have seen a revitalization of this historic local attraction, however, we believe the best is still yet to come. Facilitated by an amazing team of curators, the Utica Zoo is growing to include new exhibits, events, and promotions.
Mountainside Medical hopes to help the Utica Zoo achieve ambitious goals in education, community, and conservation. Partnering with Jackie (Veterinary Technician), Beth (Lead Keeper), and others, there is an opportunity to help support the local community and global ecosystem.
Resurgence in community interest has encouraged Heath to aim for new heights exclaiming, “It’s the year of the Zoo!” We couldn’t agree more. We are more than grateful for such an amazing opportunity and are honored to work with such a fascinating local attraction.
