The John Muir Trust has published a new resource to highlight how its activities relate to the Lake District National Park World Heritage Inscription, gained in July 2017.

The document outlines what World Heritage status means, what makes the Lake District a World Heritage Site, and outlines Trust links with three key strands: Identity, Inspiration and Conservation.

Richard Leafe, Chief Executive of the National Park recently welcomed the John Muir Trust to the Lake District as it signed a lease to manage Glenridding Common, saying: “The Lake District National Park has a long-standing relationship with the Trust, having supported its delivery of more than 18,000 John Muir Awards in Cumbria, connecting thousands of young people with wild spaces across the National Park.”

Graham Watson, John Muir Award Cumbria Manager added: “This resource document explores how the John Muir Trust is working with both the cultural and natural landscape of the Lake District. It's for anyone who wishes to find out more about how to enjoy, celebrate and care for this World Heritage site, and will be of particular interest to people using the John Muir Award in Cumbria. "
