Conserve Audit 2015
In our 2015 Conserve Audit we took a fresh look at what people put back through taking part in the John Muir Award
A Conserve Audit is a monitoring exercise that identifies the amount of activity carried out to meet the Conserve Challenge of the John Muir Award. Take a look at a four-page summary of our UK-wide 2015 Conserve Audit.
We’ve produced a range of regional and themed Conserve Audits. These show how John Muir Award activity adds up to make a significant impact on the environment and its value – not just for the John Muir Trust but for partners, funders, and everyone involved.

What people put back through taking part in the John Muir Award throughout 2015:
- 36,200 days of ‘Conserve’ activity
- carried out by 33,488 John Muir Award participants
- valued at £1,291,710, based on Heritage Lottery Fund figures
- over 7.5 hours of ‘Conserve’ activity per participant
Activity took place over an extensive range of geographical locations and across a rich diversity of habitats, from mountain landscapes and coastal plains to woodlands and school playgrounds. And data was captured to measure everything from invasive species control to surveying earthworms, and tree planting to litter picking.
A huge THANK YOU to the 1000+ John Muir Award Provider organisations that participated in the Conserve Audit. We hope you are proud of your contribution – and what it all amounts to!
Finally, we would love to hear of any ways in which you might make of this information, and if it is useful to you. You can share Conserve challenge quotes and photos via #johnmuiraward.
