Mighty Acorns® is much more than a curriculum; it is a partnership of dedicated education professionals. Partners are organizations that sponsor Mighty Acorns® in a particular geographic area. These could be public agencies, park districts, private organizations, or cultural institutions. Partners work with schools throughout the year to train teachers and volunteers, coordinate field trips, and plan stewardship activities. To learn more about the role of a partner, go to the Become a Partner page.
