Water Education Assemblies

The Soquel Creek Water District sponsors water education assemblies for schools in our service area (Soquel, Capitola, Aptos, and La Selva Beach). Each school, Kindergarten to 6th grade can choose up to 3 free consecutive shows per school year. Assembly shows present lessons about water conservation, pollution prevention, watersheds, and the hydrologic cycle through their unique, crowd-pleasing stage shows.

Banana Slug String Band

The Banana Slug String Band performs the We All Live Downstream show that focuses on groundwater awareness, water use, and conservation practices in all activities. The local "slugs" have been performing environmental songs worldwide for 30 years! The watershed songs will inspire and teach students small-step actions they can do (i.e. reducing water use by shorter showers, no running water for tooth brushing) while we make sure students have lots of fun while learning about water and watersheds! Our local Slugs bring water awareness through costumes, audience participation, and humor.

Call 888-327-5847 or email Banana Slug String Band to schedule a show.
