Friends of John Muir’s Birthplace is a local charity that supports the ongoing work of the John Muir Birthplace Charitable Trust and the staff of John Muir’s Birthplace.

Learn about the work and achievements of the Friends of John Muir’s Birthplace (founded in 1994 as Dunbar’s John Muir Association) in advancing its aims of:

  • educating the public concerning John Muir and his belief in the unique and irreplaceable value of wild places and wild creatures
  • implementing John Muir’s philosophy practically by conserving, restoring and enhancing landscape and wildlife in East Lothian and Scotland

and discuss ‘What Next?’.

Following the discussion and conclusion to the main event there will be a very short Friends of John Muir’s Birthplace AGM to conduct the formal business of the charity in order to comply with the requirements of OSCR.

Please note that a Zoom link to the event will be emailed to registered participants two days before the event.

This event is part of sustaining Dunbar’s series of community engagement events associated with the John Muir, Earth-Planet, Universe outdoor exhibition currently on display at the Dunbar Battery.
