The John Muir Trust is a leading UK charity dedicated to the protection of wild land for both nature and people. Scottish-born John Muir inspired our name and ethos, as the first person to call for action to be taken to protect wild land, and an instrumental figure in the modern conservation movement.
The Trust was founded in 1983 to safeguard the future of wild lands against development and to promote awareness and recognition of the value of such places. We are achieving this through ownership in over 25,000 hectares of land with partnerships in a further 50,000 hectares.
