The Sierra Club John Muir Award was awarded annually by the Sierra Club. It was the club's highest award. According to the Sierra Club, "it honors a distinguished record of leadership in national conservation causes, such as continuing John Muir's work of preservation and establishment of parks and wildernesses."

Due to the Sierra Club's re-evaluation's of John Muir legacy in the context of racial justice,[1] the John Muir Award was discontinued in 2020, after which the club's highest award was named the Changemaker of the Year Award.
