Download free Educational Foundations of the Mighty Acorns Program.pdf The Mighty Acorns environmental educational program is designed to provide students with multiple, meaningful, sustained interactions with the ecosystems on which all life depends. As a school year unfolds—fall to winter to spring—students help restore a natural area to ecological health. Participation in the restorative healing of an ecosystem provides students with rich and empowering experiences. The Mighty Acorns curriculum builds on those experiences. The program is organized into three levels, and each takes a full year to complete. During the fall, winter, and spring of each year students take a field trip to a natural area where they participate in restoration work, spend time exploring, and participate in pre-visit, on-site and post-visit activities focused on achieving educational outcomes.

The Mighty Acorn curriculum has been guided by the broad objectives of environmental education as articulated in the Tbilisi Declaration of 19781. Although more than 20 years have passed since these objectives were put forth, they remain the widely accepted standards of environmental education. These objectives have played a significant role in developing the
structure of the Mighty Acorns program.
