We All Live Downstream CD 
Winner 2008 NAPPA Honor Award!

Join in the musical fun as the Banana Slugs bring out toe tapping, hand-clapping, booty shaking songs about our precious Watersheds. "We All Live Downstream" started with an Ohio EPA grant that launched the Slugs on a series of watershed concerts, workshops and interactive family performances. From "One Little River," to "Storm Drain Blues," the Slugs continue to inspire learning and love for this home we call Earth.

What people are saying about Slugs At Sea:

"As a marine biologist, I wondered what kind of lyrics would surface on the "Slugs at Sea" CD by the Banana Slug String Bang (you've got to love the name!). Like they say in Australia --they're "Bang on!"
The music is catchy, it gets my kids dancing. My children (ages 6, 8, and 10) also quickly learned the lyrics and they love to sing along. As for the lyrics, this Santa Cruz, CA, based band knows their biology. There are songs about whales, life in the kelp forest, estuaries, and other great spots. Performers like Raffi are a hit among the toddler through primary grades (K-3). The Banana Slug String Band can entertain that crowd and carry children along through the rest of the elementary school years or longer. The CD has outstanding music, lyrics, and messages about nature, why we need it, and why we need to protect it.
I rate Slugs at Sea at 5 stars, only because there isn't a higher score possible. Give this CD a try -- you and your children be happy you did!"
