EARTH DAY was yesterday... an occasion we marked here at Rock Father HQ by purchasing a portable greenhouse to hold our seedlings as we ready things for a new season of gardening. While a "day" is fine to learn about and celebrate the Earth, the National Wildlife Federation encourages kids and families to do so every day... and their iOS Apps are a fun way for kids to learn. To celebrate Earth Week, NWF has made two of their popular RANGER RICK Apps available at a 60% Discount through April 29th. Check out the details below...
