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 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.

― John Muir,
