If you spend four days (or at least 24 hours) or more with your family discovering, exploring, conserving and sharing wild places then you could achieve the Pembrokeshire Coast Family John Muir Award.
The John Muir Award is an environmental award scheme focused on wild places. It encourages people of all backgrounds to connect with, enjoy, and care for wild places and can be done over the course of a week, six months or longer.
You can share your John Muir Award journey in the Facebook group.
It’s a brilliantly flexible way for all families to experience the outdoors, learn about nature and care for our wonderful wild places.
Everyone can get involved, from toddlers to teens, to grown-ups and grandparents, couples and cousins, aunties and uncles, complete newbies and seasoned adventurers!
Watch the videos on the John Muir Award Youtube channel for lots of ideas about what you could do.
For advice you can email email@example.com, or call the National Park Authority and ask for the Discovery Team who will be happy to talk it through. Drop into one of the National Park Visitor Centres, or come along to one of our John Muir Award Family Discovery Sessions (see below).
Completing the Award
All you need to do is show us the evidence that you have spent at least four days discovering, exploring, conserving and sharing wild places. You can keep a journal on paper, take photographs or make a video about what you have been doing. Bring your evidence in to one of our centres or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
