A visit to Cape Fear Botanical Garden on November 9 ends our fall 2016 day-trip series. Along with a guided tour, we will also be able to view the larger-than-life Lego sculptures made by California artist Sean Kenney, part of a Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks Exhibit. Camellias and a project to help wounded soldiers are just two of the many intriguing features that are part of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden.
