From microscopic cells to vast ecosystems, nature is filled with extraordinary and delicate relationships that connect to form the wondrous world around us. The Garden invites Clevelanders of all ages to explore the fascinating stories behind these relationships and more at Nature Connects: A LEGO® Brick Experience - special to the Garden this summer only!

Cleveland families can learn about and discover the amazing interconnections in nature through daily interactive indoor and out experiences and special programs including:

  • Encounter 14 astounding LEGO brick sculptures depicting plants and animals, designed and built by certified LEGO professional Sean Kenney. The sculptures are built with 500,000 LEGO bricks and some weigh more than 500 lbs!
  • View dozens of "Build Your Own Creation" LEGO nature sculptures created by Cleveland area LEGO clubs and residents.
  • Build your own special LEGO creation to take home at our Buy and Build Station
  • Learn fascinating facts about the natural world during daily Nature Connects programs in Hershey Children's Garden
  • Discover the interesting and wonderful world of bees
  • Go on scavenger hunts for live frogs and butterflies
