About the John Muir Trust

  • The John Muir Trust is a UK charity founded in 1983. We believe wild places are essential for the wellbeing of people and wildlife.  Our mission is to conserve and protect wild places with their indigenous animals, plants and soils for the benefit of present and future generations.  Our vision is of a world where wild places are protected and enhanced, and valued by and for everyone.
  • We take our name and inspiration from John Muir, the Scots-born founder of the modern conservation movement. Muir was passionate about wild places. He explored them, wrote about them and campaigned to protect them.  Like Muir, we believe in protecting wild places – for their own sake, and for the wellbeing of people and wildlife.
  • Over 25,000 members, supporters and partners contribute to our work. Our activities generate over £1m worth of conservation volunteering each year. Find out more
