LEGO® Gifts for LEGO® Geeks

Finches fabricated from LEGO bricks feast on fanciful food at feeders also fashioned out of LEGO pieces. A trio of pollinators (a bee, a butterfly and a hummingbird,) made entirely from LEGO parts, hovers in the summer sun. A bison cow constructed of LEGO pieces communes with her calf in the company of their curious feathered friend.

Look in the library, on the lawn and even in the Garden Shop, where you’ll find LEGO swag, perfect for gifts or souvenirs of your visit to Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks!
