History / Inspiration
From the forest floor to the canopies of Oakland, tiny Oaklandish acorns develop into the wide oaks that are native to the East Bay.
Oak trees and their acorns have been very important in the birth of Oakland and its subsequent history. Early Spanish conquistadors named the area that is now Oakland, encinal, meaning "oak grove" in Spanish, and ever since the oak tree has been engrained in our hearts.
Let your Acornish child dig their roots into Oakland's soil, and become one of those oaks that we are all so proud of.
