The John Muir Trust is the UK’s leading wild land conservation charity, dedicated to protecting and restoring wild places.
Founded in 1983, the Trust takes its inspiration from John Muir, the Scots-born founder of the modern conservation movement. The John Muir Trust exists to protect wild land – for its own sake, and because it believes wild places are essential for everyone. Wild landscapes give us clean air, fresh water, wildlife habitat and help to regulate climate. And they provide economic benefits to communities through tourism and recreational activities.
The Trust owns and looks after some of the finest areas of wild land in the UK including parts of Ben Nevis, Knoydart, the Cuillin on Skye, and Sandwood Bay. It cares for these magnificent landscapes by restoring habitats; and it mobilizes teams of committed volunteers to plant trees, remove invasive species, clear litter, repair footpaths and other vital tasks to help restore these wild places.
The John Muir Trust also campaigns to protect wild land under threat from large scale development. And through the John Muir Award, it helps thousands of people to enjoy and care for nature.
