John Muir Trust

Description

The John Muir Trust is a charity that was founded in 1983. It believes wild places are essential for the wellbeing of people and wildlife.

The Trust purchases and conserves some outstandingly beautiful areas of wild land including Ben Nevis and parts of the Isle of Skye, Knoydart, Sutherland and Perthshire. Named after John Muir, the 'father of the modern conservation movement', the Trust aims to show the importance of wild places and their conservation.

The Trust has members all over the UK - people who love the hills and wild coastlines and want to ‘give something back to them’. It runs the John Muir Award, an environmental award scheme focusing on wild places, which encourages the discovery and conservation of wild places in a spirit of fun, adventure and exploration. The Award is non-competitive and open to all. Since 1997, over 50,000 people have received the Award, participating as individuals or through a club, school or local organisation.
