Description: LEGO Master Builders have created a safari on display along a wooded path near Zoo Center, featuring incredible LEGO wildlife sculptures and activities for the whole family. Visitors will see lemurs, a tiger, hornbills, rhinos, gorillas, flamingoes, a giraffe, and other exotic wildlife along their trek, and can visit their real-life counterparts throughout the zoo. At the LEGO Construction Zone at the Dancing Crane pavilion, visitors will be able to construct LEGO wildlife sculptures and take part in the construction of a mystery mural. Guests can work with LEGO Master Builders one weekend a month on the Reptile House lawn. In addition to the LEGO fun, the Wildlife Theater will perform for guests as along the safari path. Guests are also invited to create their own animal prints and puppets based on the zoo's African animals with the help of artists from the Museum for African Art. Wildlife Theater shows, crafts, activities, and conservation learning stations will keep the whole family busy. For a full schedule of activities and exhibits, visit bronxzoo.com. Through September 3.
