Environment award scheme launching in Dagenham next week
Lovers of the great outdoors are being invited to get involved in a scheme aimed at celebrating the environment.
The John Muir Award is being launched on August 7 at Beam Parklands in Dagenham.
Named after Scottish naturalist and pioneering ecologist John Muir, it is aimed at encouraging people to enjoy the outdoors and help preserve green spaces for future generations.
Organisers say the award will help broaden people’s understanding of environmental issues, as well as looking great on participants’ CVs.
