Acorn Naturalists was organized by educators over thirty years ago to focus on (1) getting more children outdoors by equipping educators, naturalists, camp leaders, after school educators, and parents with inquiry-oriented resources for learning more about their environments and (2) promoting appreciation for and understanding of the natural world. We believe experiences that celebrate nature, enhance knowledge, and encourage observation are essential building blocks for advancing literacy—the capacity to critically think about issues and make informed choices. Supporting these goals, Acorn Naturalists is directed today by the original founders who have both practical experience (classroom experience and teaching credentials) as well as an understanding of educational theory. Resources contained in Acorn Naturalists print catalog and website are selected with the above goals in mind.
