The goals of Project ACORN are to improve environmental literacy for participating PreK - 8th grade students through hands-on, inquiry-based science activities and to increase community involvement in environmental science activities by addressing plant biodiversity in the San Antonio River watershed.
Students will plant and maintain a butterfly and vegetable garden. They receive inquiry-based science instruction on environmental education topics. They also collect data and take environmental measurements and report findings in a global scientific database (GLOBE).
