March 5 – September 5

Brookgreen Gardens hosts 12 larger-than-life LEGO® brick sculpture installations in its Native Wildlife Zoo. Created by Sean Kenney, renowned artist and children’s author, “Nature Connects” is an award winning exhibit currently touring the country. Made from almost a half million LEGO® bricks, the sculptures bring nature to life. The exhibit is open daily and included in garden admission.

It features interpretive panels with an educational message for each sculpture to help connect children with the natural world and promote conservation. In addition, there are educational activities such as sculpture building contest, scavenger hunts, and 30,000 LEGO® bricks available for guests to play with during their visit.

On Wednesday - Fridays, during Cool Summer Evenings, June 8 - August 5, the exhibit is open late until 8 p.m.
