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.

One of the wonderful things about Wild Mountains is that we get to meet lots of lovely people.

Take for example our annual Volunteer Week: a Jack rings a few days before looking for a summer camp for his girls. Having been in the country for just 2 weeks he is searching for opportunities for his family. I had to explain that we didn’t have summer camps (although they had been on the cards a few years ago) but that if he wished he could bring the family up for the VW Week.

Ready or not here comes 2013. Another year has started for us all and at Wild Mountains we are back on board and reaching out to you and the world to remember our connection the earth. 

Over Christmas I was reminded how important it is to take time to reflect in our busy lives on things that are truly important. The love of friends and family, good food and taking the time to acknowledge how lucky we are to be alive on this beautiful bauble, earth.

Thanks to supporters over the last many months for having moved projects along, helping out on programs, keeping up the important maintenance of everything and finally bringing your enthusiasm and energy. In particular we owe heaps to Saba for stepping in and filling Donna’s shoes and helping lead our Earthkeepers this year.
