Creating for Conservation at the Greater Vancouver Zoo {+Giveaway}


How many of us have special memories of visiting the Greater Vancouver Zoo as a kid? I remember getting really excited about the zebras (that hair! those stripes!) and have photos of visiting when I was little. Now we get to make some special memories with our own kids and when we took the kids last year Ari was all about the hippos. I can't even remember what her fascination was with the creatures, but she was obsessed! Even though they were hard to see, half- hidden in their lagoon, she loved seeing them and visiting the not so camera shy creatures and got up close & personal with the giraffe (probably the highlight of the visit for me). 

It's one of those places you can go to over and over again and feel like it's a whole new experience each time you go. We're looking forward to visiting again this Summer and I'm excited to be giving away a pair of tickets plus some LEGO to celebrate their Creating for Conservation event on July 30th. This event will help raise funds and awareness for animal conservation both locally and globally. LEGO enthusiasts are invited to create a sculpture on the theme of animal conservation and be entered to win some great prizes while helping animals in need. Scroll to the end of this post for full event details and to enter for your chance to win tickets to the Greater Vancouver Zoo & some LEGO to go along with your visit!
