Get ready for 2018 with the
Wild Nature Diary & Calendar

The wild landscapes of Britain are some of the most beautiful in the world. From the far North West Highlands and Islands of Scotland to the rugged sea cliffs of Cornwall are hidden corners of wildness, each with their own special creatures, plants and geology.

Yet these apparently unspoilt and natural landscapes are impacted everywhere by human occupation, overgrazing and blanket forestry. Positive action was called for in the face of this process of erosion and degradation and the John Muir Trust was formed in 1983, standing up for the wild land values pioneered by John Muir over a hundred years ago.

This website introduces those elements of land, nature, people and spirit that meant so much to him, and demonstrates that the natural world has a vital part to play in our lives through stewardship and preservation of ecosystems and natural resources.

The photographs within the pages of the Wild Nature Diary and the Wild Nature Calendar have been drawn from photographers with direct experience of encounters from the natural world in which we live. Each image tells its own inspiring story and helps us to connect with nature every day.

I hope you enjoy the scenes, textures and atmospheres of wild places throughout the year in the pages of the Wild Nature Diary 2018 and its companion Wild Nature Calendar 2018.

European Larch trees Larix decidua in Matterdale Cumbria. This species introduced in the early 17th Century for timber, is coniferous, but loses its needles in winter. The seeds of the larch are useful food for red squirrels, siskin and lesser redpoll whilst many species of caterpillars and moths feed on the foliage.

"Snowfall in the Lake District at the end of April is uncommon. It was on one of these days where the early Spring growth of the larch was unexpectedly covered by a blanket of white. During the midst of the snowfall - the falling snow quickly accumulated around the bases of the trunks and delicately clung to the fine branches.  It lasted a few brief hours and by late morning the larch was once again free of its cloak and looking forward to warmer days of the summer months." – Ross Brown
