Is there an estuary honor yet? I've looked, and unless I've overlooked it, we don't. Let me know - because I'm working on one and would love to get it around the clubs.

An honor that focuses soley on the mouth of a River? I am curious.

No there is no such honor in any official capacity at this time and I am not aware of anyone in the world that is piloting one currently.

I will like to see it when you have it ready.

God Bless your efforts,

No, estuaries are not just mouths of rivers, but also bays, inlets, swamps, etc. An estuary supports delicate life systems. I live next to a bay. Even lakes are estuaries. On my research I've been doing, I've found all kinds of neat info about them, much I didn't even know. God is amazing, and He really shows off when He created these things!

I'm just about done with it - right now I'm finishing work on a possible honor patch to go along with it. The best way for me to get info to anyone would be to email it.

Great, thanks. I believe I've already learned something new. Closest existing honor would be Enviromental Conservation, and might be a good companion for your honor. That honor originated in 1973 so it will be in all modern handbooks.

There is also a requirement in Voyager for a stream study, simplified compared to the honor.

My email is available to all members and so is my web site please let me know when you have the finished product. We will be happy to look it over, then if approved and with your permission, we will post it on our web site. This offer is open to all who develop new honors. We need current contact information for you as we will have to have a way to forward feedback and evaluations to you, if we receive them.

God Bless,

For all those interested in taking a look at the finished product....

visit: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sdapathfinders

You WILL have to become a member in order to view the file. Once there, click on files and open the honor folder. Find the estuary honor file in adobe format. PLEASE tell me what you think by posting on this forum AND my pathfinder group forum. Everyone needs to know your comments in order for this to be a good one. Thanks all and God bless.

It is available online to be tested by clubs anywhere! It NEEDS tested in order to be put before the NAD Committe in Jacksonville in only four months.

I think a series of honors should be made dedicated to the different ecosystems, e.g Ocean, Rainforest, Desert, Tundra, etc. You're estuary honor is a good start since most people are unfamiliar with how important it is and all the unique animals and plants that live there!

I believ there is a series of honors being written covering the differant ecosystems. The person working on them is a Pathfinder leader and science professor at Andrews, and I can't remember his name.

Probably Dr. Atkins. At the last workshot he got the TLTs together and they were working on some new series of honors, so that's probably who you're speaking of.

Ok - I'm ready to pilot this honor to hopefully get it to the NAD committee for the next honor approvals... Any takers besides my club?

Hope the committee accepts this honour. Sounds good. One that interests me as our city is next to an estuary. Sailing ships used to sail up it to the wharf to load and unload cargo. But nolonger as it has silted up. So the world known Bluff harbour was created a 20 minute drive away from Invercargill.

Hi Dreamcatcher.
The Invercargill New Zealand Club would also like to Pilot this honour. I have downloaded the info from your link.
We would be doing it early 2010.

I created a workbook on this honour for my club to use. There is still a bit of writing for the PFs to do in it. Is illustrated with pictures and tiltle page. Microsoft word format so It can be altered to suit your club. All pictures are public domain so copying not an issue. Ackknowlegments given to creator of work on this pilot honour. If any one wants a copy to use let me know.
There are several good 5-10 minute movies about Estuarys on "you tube".

Invercargill Club has finished. Evaluation form posted.
I have expanded some of the recommended answers Req1. Estuaries are also where rivers enter larger freshwater lakes (look at the great estuaries at the great lakes of the US) , not only the sea. Req4 could ask to if possible include some in your area.

Betsy. Will email workbook to you but I have lost your email ad.

I usually make up a work book for all the honours my club does. This keeps all the honours to a set standard. Kids don't like writing. So this eliminates a bit of writting they just have to research and fill in the answers etc. It makes it a bit more attractive. They can also be individulised for craft type honours the book can have photos of the person doing the work.
The estuary workbook can be adapted with other pictures that may mean more to your group.
