Brick Quest | Daily
June 28 – September 22
Come Play with Us! Pick up a Brick Quest and learn interesting facts about six of the animals featured in our Nature Connects®: Art with Lego Bricks themed scavenger hunt that asks families to search for six sculptures.
Here’s How it Works
- To get started, just ask for a Brick Quest and a map at the admissions desk in the Robins Visitors Center.
- Follow the directions to all six sculptures and record your answers on the brochure.
- If you find all six sculptures, you can get a prize by showing your completed Brick Quest to an Admissions Staff member.
Tree Trail | Daily
Borrow a walking stick and take a trek along the Tree Trail.
Nature Meditation: Adults and children alike can enjoy a special place in nature which will soothe, comfort and relax you.
Building Station: Construct a gnome home. Pinecones, sticks, logs and leaves found on the ground make great building materials.
