I didn't know there was a training and certification process for the Hornaday project advisor. I thought it would be the conservation officer at the facility where the project is done.
We just recently got a Hornaday chairman in our council. He verified for me that the advisor can be different for each project. He also mentioned that the projects do not all have to be as involved or difficult as the Eagle project.
I have never seen anyone in our area wear the Hornaday knot. I'm not sure it has ever been awarded here. Apparently our council staff doesn't know much about how it is done. Our new district Hornaday Award Chairman was told at council that, "We don't do that here."
My troop earned the unit award several years ago, and the council didn't seem to know how to handle the application. It took several calls from me to get the application processed and get the certificate back.
