Ranger Rick's Trail Mix, Vol.1- a musicwrap


The Whizpops Present Their Fourth Science Based Album, in Cooperation with the National Wildlife Federation

Ranger Rick's Trail Mix, Vol. 1

* What time of day does the black footed ferret emerge from its den?
* What plant does a monarch butterfly need to survive?
* Is it true that "Everything's Better with a Mustache?"

Want to find out the answers to these questions?  Well Ranger Rick and The Whizpops can enlighten you with their new album.  This is a collection of 11 original songs that arrived just in time for Endangered Species Day. It's the premier album of a planned series created to support the conservation efforts of the National Wildlife Federation.

The Whizpops have put together a set of songs that are catchy, fun and scientificaly accurate too.  Kids will love the tunes dished out in pop, rock, country and reggae style, just to name a few.  

Music is a powerful tool, especially as it relates to kids and education. This project focuses on educating future generations about wildlife conservation.  A downloadable learning guide for family and classrooms uses will be available this summer.  For more information and concert updates visit:

available through iTunes

I highly recommend this album. It is a perfect combo of both fun and education... the ideal mix that your kids (and you too) will love listening to again and again.
