The Trust is delighted to announce continued funding support from NatureScot for the John Muir Award and Engagement 2021-22. 

Funding will help the Trust contribute towards NatureScot’s compatible priority areas of: access to and enjoyment of nature; the role of nature in transforming places where people live; skills for a nature-rich future, especially in youth employment; action to reverse biodiversity loss; and Nature-based Solutions to climate change and other problems.

Toby Clark, John Muir Award Scotland Manager, said: “We’re very pleased to receive this support from NatureScot. By strengthening understanding, connection to, and care of wild places we contribute towards a nature-rich future for Scotland - vital in enhancing ‘green recovery’ from Covid-19 and stimulating resilience in response to the climate emergency.”
