Boy Scout Jamboree Day 7

The hot weather finally broke today and temperatures were in the 80’s with a slight breeze and much lower humidity.  All of the exhibit volunteers were kept very busy with about 1870 scouts, adults and visitors coming through our exhibit.  We had prepared about 2000 pins for distribution and almost all were given out.  We are expecting even more visitors tomorrow – Saturday.

I took some time and wandered down the Conservation Trail and had the opportunity to take in several of the other exhibits along the trail – VA Dept. of Conservation and Recreation, Antarctic Scouts, American Water Works, US Bureau of Reclamation, US Army Corps of Engineers, National Resources Conservation Service, Take Pride in America, Virginia Dept. of Environmental Quality, USDA Forest Service, Leave No Trace,  BSA Hornaday Awards, and National Park Service.  These visits enabled me to receive the 2010 National Scout Jamboree Conservation Environment Area Patch:

To obtain this badge, you had to obtain stamps (confirming your participation and visit) at 10 of the 25 exhibits along the Conservation Trail.  WEF’s Exhibit is at the very beginning of the Conservation Trail and we are very often the first stamp on the Passport that is given to each person taking the Conservation Trail Journey.  The patch is very colorful and I am sure will be a valued memento for their attendance at the 100th Anniversary Jamboree and their journey on the Conservation Trail.

Several of the volunteers enjoyed Barbecue at the Virginia Barbecue Restaurant tonight and discussed getting ready for the onslaught of visitors expected on Saturday.  We will be leaving for the Jamboree at 7:30 AM and will have our picture taken with the Air and Water Management Exhibit Volunteers at 8:45 AM at the beginning of the trail.  We are looking forward to a record attendance tomorrow at the WEF Exhibit Area.  Well, it is getting late and I need to rest up for tomorrow.  Again, thanks to all of those who have volunteered their time to work at the WEF Exhibit area!  I will have one more Blog after this and will then be heading back to Philadelphia on Sunday morning.  What a wonderful experience this has been.
