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.

We were informed that the ISV organisation needed to focus on new marketing methods as numbers right across Australia were slowly dropping making the viability of their organisation untenable. We are sorry not to have our international students here as we know the power of the program and the positive changes we have made to the lives of many students over the last 12 years.

It never ceases to amaze us how engrossed the children become. No pushing required to engage them in activities, just gentle pulling and even then it’s about keeping their enthusiasm in check.
