John Muir Award
WILD PLACES: discover, explore, conserve, share.
John Muir was a Scottish-American naturalist whose lifelong love affair with nature led to the establishment of National Parks in the USA and the founding of the Sierra Club in North America. The John Muir Trust is a UK wild land conservation charity founded in 1983 that takes its inspiration from his work.
TYF’s mission to inspire long lives of adventure & learning is closely relates to the John Muir Trust’s values, and TYF’s existing education work strives to connect people to their dreams, each other and nature so strongly that they make good things happen with every step they take.
The Trust’s John Muir Award encourages awareness and responsibility for the natural environment with four core challenges of ‘discover – explore – conserve – share’. From 2015, TYF, will be working with the John Muir Trust to ensure that every student attending TYF’s residential school programme has the opportunity to achieve a John Muir Award as a result of discovery and exploration of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park during their time with us.
