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.

Our first Earthkeepers Program for the year really got close to nature. Our long term participant Noosa Pengari Steiner School came back to Wild Mountains for another class adventure with 26 students in 4 days of rain.

This didn’t seem to phase the students overly as they showed much enthusiasm over the activities, donning raincoats and heading out into the jungles, before coming back into the warmth of the fire in the main hall.

All in all the program went off like clockwork with first time program volunteers Matt de Boer and Ben Spokes helping with activities while Jaide and Cyrille provided yummy meals from the kitchen.
