CONNECTING HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT

Inspired by nature and built from more than 450,000 LEGO® brick pieces, the Nature Connects® exhibition will feature 14 displays with sculptures that represent the incredible connections that sustain life on earth. Through this exhibition, Garden guests may learn how they are personally connected to plants, how plants rely on diversity, how plants rely on pollinators, and how humans rely on the wonders of the natural world.
