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.

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.

"I have to tell you my time at WM with ISV back in 2007 has impacted my life in so many ways. I've been a vegetarian for 7 years now and I can't imagine going back. My time at WM exposed me to how delicious plant based meals can be. I try to buy local and I buy my produce from farmers markets as much as I can. I'm huge on composting and recycling, I try to limit my waste whenever I can. You are doing great things at WM and I'm glad I could have been a part of it even for only a few weeks." ~Rachel

26 Noosa Pengari Steiner students kicked off our Earthkeepers programs for 2015, and as usual were a bundle of enthusiasm and energy that once focussed concentrated into new learnings and observations. Steiner kids are always getting into the natural world and with the focussed step by step approach of Earth Education you can see them get right into exploring the wonders of nature in many different ways by using all of their senses. And their expressiveness came after their magic spots while sharing their writings and stories of time spent alone in the bush.

A great time was had by all. They have now returned to home and school to complete the final tasks in becoming fully fledged Earthkeepers. We look forward to handing out their certificates and would like to thank their guardians...

 Friends who haven’t been down to Shellar’s Bend in a wee while are gobsmacked at the difference between then and now. Since the Jan VW Week the Camp Creek Headwaters Renewal Project is moving right along. With two more VWs under our belt the site continues to change and reveal just what can be done with a great bunch of enthusiastic volunteers.

Our local Scenic Rim Council officers Keith McCosh and Andrew McLoughlin (who have provided a grant to assist in the project) along with our local councillor Virginia West came up recently and were very impressed with the extent of work being done.
