The John Muir Trust is a leading UK charity dedicated to the protection of wild land for both nature and people. Scottish-born John Muir inspired our name and ethos, as the first person to call for action to be taken to protect wild land, and an instrumental figure in the modern conservation movement.
The Trust was founded in 1983 to safeguard the future of wild lands against development and to promote awareness and recognition of the value of such places. We are achieving this through ownership in over 25,000 hectares of land with partnerships in a further 50,000 hectares.

The John Muir Trust educates people about the value of wild places through the John Muir Award. It was started in 1997 to offer people of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to learn about wild places. Through the four challenges of discover, explore, conserve and share and three progressive levels of involvement, it has so far helped over 50,000 people gain an appreciation of such places.

We engage people with wild places through our volunteer Conservation Programme. We welcome volunteers to join us on our conservation weekends.
