Do you like being outside in the fresh air? Do you like discovering new places and helping to look after your local area? Then the John Muir Award could be for you!
The John Muir Award is a national environmental award that encourages people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with, enjoy and care for wild places. It encourages responsibility for the natural environment in the spirit of fun and adventure.
At the heart of the John Muir Award are four challenges:
Discover a wild place, what is living and growing around us
Explore its wildness to enjoy and appreciate your local areas
Conserve the area, help look after your wild place
Share your experiences about what you discovered with others
We're running a five day course for young people aged 10-15 leading to the completion of this national award. Some of the fun activities we will include will be foraging, cooking outdoors and a variety of bushcraft activities!
