Summer Safari AND LEGO fun

in Essential Ramblings

Tie on your canvas hats and take the family on a summer safari at the Bronx Zoo. Journey to the Wild Forest to check out giant LEGO sculptures of tigers, flamingos, gorillas, and other exotic wildlife, then visit their real-life counterparts around the zoo. View new LEGO sculptures built especially for the Bronx Zoo, on view just outside Zoo Center’s rhinoceros exhibit in our Wild Forest area. Information on the featured animals and the work to conserve them is included in the displays. LEGO Build Zone: With thousands of colorful LEGO bricks to choose from, kids can create their own sculptures of animals and help complete a vibrant Mystery Mural display at Dancing Crane Plaza. We will also display visitors’ own LEGO creations on bookshelves for all to see.  LEGO Family Challenge: How long will it take you to build your favorite animal out of LEGO bricks? Join LEGO Master Builder Dan Steininger as you compete with other families to find out who is fastest! Dan will offer tips and challenge participants to build wild animals including poison dart frogs, giraffes, and more.  Dates & Times: July 21, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.; August 11, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
