Our recent Yelp Elite Event at the Tucson Botanical Gardens is one for the record books! Yelpers gathered for an exclusive preview of the Nature Connects exhibit at TBG. Guests sipped on beer and wine and noshed on exquisite tamales from Tucson Tamale Company and exotic paletas from Cafè Botanica under the brand new SAHBA Pavilion. Between private tours of the Butterfly Magic exhibit, full access to 50,000 legos to play with and a competitive scavenger hunt across the property, our #NatureConnectsYelp event was nothing short of magical fun! Scavenger hunt winners all received free days passes to the gardens, our Instagram photo challenge winner went home a one year membership and everyone received a gift bag courtesy of the Gardens Gift Shop packed with coupons, specialty playing cards, puzzles and more! Read the 5-star reviews of the event here, check out the whimsical pics from the #NatureConnectsYelp Instagram photo challenge and see all of the event photos on our face book page!
A Huge thank you to our sponsors and partners:
Nature Connects is a traveling exhibit displaying the work of the very talented and nationally known artist, Sean Kenney. Thirteen of the fifty sculptures, including a hanging Corn Spider, Galapagos Tortoise and Monarch Butterfly are on display throughout the Gardens. The sculptures are built with over a half of a million LEGO bricks, some weighing more than 500 pounds. The Tucson Botanical Gardens is the first and only venue in Arizona to host Nature Connects.
