Celebrate #JohnMuirDay 2022
#JohnMuirDay offers an annual opportunity to mark John Muir’s birthday, 21 April 1838. Mark the date in your calendar and help celebrate all the benefits of wild places across the UK and beyond
The John Muir Trust was inspired by the life and works of John Muir (1838-1914), the Scots-born founding father of modern conservation and the inspiration behind national parks. The following articles demonstrate how Muir inspires our purpose to conserve, protect and restore wild places for the benefit of all - we hope they inspire you to celebrate #JohnMuirDay.
