Ranger Rick Magazine

Have you heard of Ranger Rick magazine? It's a really awesome magazine to subscribe to when you love nature and want to share that with your kids. I'm going to say more about it in a minute. But first, I'm breaking with my Wednesday give away day today to bring you an extra special give away.

I have 5 fun packets, each of which includes Ranger Rick and more, to give away to my loyal, long-time readers - I know who you are, and so do you! I want to say thank you for following me. I'm reserving these packets to go to those whom I already know support me. On Wednesday I'm launching my new blog. There will be more exciting give aways at my new spot on the web, including 5 further Ranger Rick packets, for those who are new or who don't win this time around. This is your heads up and your chance to receive a token of my appreciation before all the confusion of subscribing to my new feed and setting up new bookmarks ensues.

So here is what you get with Ranger Rick:
  • 44 page full-color magazine on FSC certified paper - 30% recycled - produced by a lovely editor (I know because she sent me the magazines) at the National Wildlife Federation.
  • 7 page feature on box turtles with stunning photos and really interesting facts.
  • Reader submitted photos, letters and questions.
  • 6 pages of activities, including a page of jokes.
  • Comic book style Ranger Rick story.
  • 8 page feature on birds and how they use their wings.
  • A campfire story and tips on telling campfire tales.
  • 6 page feature on coyotes with great action pics and lots of cubs.
  • 2 pages of funny, captioned dog surfing photos.
There will be additional items in your Ranger Rick packet if you're one of the winners, but I'm not saying what. You'll have to wait and see.

Here's what you do to be entered in the drawing (only open to mainland USA). Send an e-mail to me at the e-mail for my new blog (pictured below). Tell me something that will allow me to identify you as a long-time or subscribed reader - I need a memory jog. Here are some ideas:
  • a link to your blog
  • something related to how you first found my blog or how long you've been reading
  • or remind me that I've e-mailed you before and what it was about
Here is the e-mail address

At the same time I will subscribe you to my future newsletter (not the same as my RSS feed). Don't expect to see my newsletter for a month or two - it will contain extra great stuff though and I think you'll love it. Thanks and good luck :-)
