Celebrate John Muir Day
John Muir the Scots born naturalist, writer, climber, inventor, conservationist and campaigner would have been 180 years old on 21st April 2018.

“The mountains are calling and I must go.”
― John Muir

John Muir was instrumental in establishing the world’s first National Parks system in America in the early 1900’s.  A global family of 6,555 protected National Park areas now covers 12% of the Earth’s surface. Enjoy Muir’s legacy in the UK by visiting a National Park near you or investigating what a City National Park could be.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity”
― John Muir, Our National Parks
