The Wild Mountains Trust is an independent, community focussed, non-profit organisation providing leadership in environmental education and conservation.

The Trust has acquired land south of Rathdowney adjoining the World Heritage Border Ranges National Park for a nature reserve and venue for education. On this magnificent site a world class Centre is being built. Here, using the unique purpose-built residential facility, quality experiential environmental education for the whole community will be provided.  Wild Mountains has a vision of a world where people lead fulfilling lives while sharing the earth’s resources with all of the life forms on this planet and without degrading our life support systems. We believe the best way of achieving this is through education. In response, Wild Mountains has the vision of a world class centre where environmental education in a natural setting is the cornerstone of learning.Our vision sees people sharing life’s amazing natural wonders through programs that help them to understand their relationship to the natural world and inspire them to lead environmentally conscious lifestyles.As well we see Wild Mountains’ supporters participating in the functioning of a centre that demonstrates new technologies in its building infrastructure, power and waste management, and sound land stewardship for the benefit of future generations.

In subtropical and eucalypt forests participants will have the opportunity to discover an amazing natural world. At the same time Wild Mountains can reinforce its educational programs with examples of renewable power generation.

We at Wild Mountains recognise the traditional custodians, acknowledging that they are part of the oldest living culture on earth, living on, shaping and managing this land for tens of thousands of years. The Midginberri tribe of the Yugambeh language grouping are the traditional custodians, who continue to have an enduring connection to this land. As present carers we acknowledge thier culture and story and endeavour to the best of our abilities to nurture this land for future generations.

Check out the images for the progress on the shed :) Great helpers, great outcomes. 

I came across a article in the National Geographic sharing some scientific research on the fact we feel better when we get into nature. It was an entretaining article and had some good points on the value of getting out and reconnecting with nature. Weather in your own back yard, local park or the pristine wild. The article suggested that reconnecting with nature at any level was a good thing. We get to see this all the time- below Cecilia, an exchange student from Denmark...
