If you're a huge fan of Legos, I'm pretty sure you're going to love this new event that just landed in Rockford!

You never really know what you'll find scrolling through Facebook at all hours of the day.  I happened to find this super cool family-friendly event making its appearance at the Klehm Arboretum starting this week!  Though I'm not a Lego fanatic, I have plenty of friends who build Lego figurines and sell them for a living - and I'm sure they'll love this!

Each Lego sculpture depicts a different part of nature and the importance of protecting it at all costs!  This one below shows the significance of planting a garden and the relationships between humankind and the natural world.

This is my favorite, the butterfly on a flower!  How gorgeous!  This is just one of 15 sculptures you'll spot.  Each one is 100% made of LEGO® bricks, and will all be installed throughout the 155-acres of Klehm Arboretum.

You now have the chance to take the entire family out to explore these beauties NOW through September 11th, 2022.  The exhibit is open to the public 7 days a week from 9:00am to 7:00pm!

Make it a priority to visit the Gardens soon!  You can get tickets to the Nature Connects Exhibit at the Klehm Arboretum.  To find more information about this event & where they're located, visit their website!
