has a new website! You can click here to go straight to it, and/or you can review
the following questions and answers.
1. Can I use either site?
Yes, both sites have the same pricing and products, although
the new site has more images, a state-of-the-art search
engine, better navigation, and streamlined checkout
2. So why are you leaving the old site up?
So that if you wish, you can pull up past order history.
3. Do I need to set up a new account on the new site?
Yes - the new site is written in a new, faster, more powerful
and secure computer language, but because of this, the old
data isn't transferable.
often do you make a major platform change like this?
The last time was two decades ago! This time we created a 100%
custom designed site which we can can continuously update and improve
without changing platforms.
5. Is the new site mobile responsive?
Yes. This is one of
the many reasons we upgraded the site.
The website will change size and shape to fit your device.
6. What if I am on the new site and want for some reason to
go back to the old site? A hot link
to the old site can be found in the lower right corner of every page
on the new site.
7. What if I discover a problem on the new website? Please
let us know! We have been working hard on this site for
over a year and have conducted extensive testing before
going live. If, however, we missed something or you
would like to suggest improvements, please
8. Why does the new site
have a dash between "acorn" and "naturalists"?
In order to keep both sites
running at the same time (for the reasons above), the new site,
must have a different address.
9. I have used Acorn products for many years and would like
to share my experiences.
Can I easily do this on the new site? Yes,
please! On every
product page there is a link to share your ideas and experiences. Only your first name
will appear, but other
educators will then be able to benefit from your experience and
10. Is the company itself the same? Yes, Acorn Naturalists
is still directed by the same educators who founded the
company over three decades ago. Most of our staff have been
with us for many years. We look forward to
maintaining our reputation for responsive, well
informed, and personalized customer service.
