East Ayrshire and the John Muir Trust went into a partnership in April 2017. This partnership was formed to embed the John Muir Award in schools throughout the authority. The John Muir Award gives pupils, staff and parents the opportunity to Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share school grounds and local greenspace areas.

Galston Primary P7 class also created a video as part of their John Muir Award to talk about why they were planting trees in their school playground and the wider benefits of this.
