The John Muir Trust

Dedicated to the protection of wild land

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. They are achieving this through ownership of over 25,000 hectares of land with partnerships in a further 93,000 hectares.

The John Muir Award offers people of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to learn about wild places. It has so far helped over 50,000 people gain an appreciation of such places.

Mountain Equipment are proud to be a corporate memeber of the John Muir Trust.
