John Muir Award
Our engagement initiative encourages people to connect with, enjoy, and care for wild places.
It’s an environmental award scheme for people of all backgrounds – groups, families, individuals. It’s non-competitive, inclusive and accessible.
The John Muir Award Team are here to support your Award activity during this unprecedented time.
