2013 Hug the Earth Festival with the Banana Slug String Band


The Banana Slug String Band from Santa Cruz, California was back in Miami County, Ohio last week for the sixteenth annual Hug the Earth Festival.  This is the second year that the five-day long celebration has been held at the Stillwater Prairie Reserve.  The Festival outgrew its old site, the Garby Big Woods Reserve.

Besides the hour-long concerts in which the students performed with the slugs, they enjoyed ...


Earthball activities...


Digging for special rocks like limestone and fossils and shark teeth...


Screening for gemstones...


Petting animals...


Learning about exotic animals...


Climbing trees...


And speeding through the air on Zip lines.
