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.

Wild Mountains has again had the pleasure of presenting our Earthkeepers program to new and returning schools throughout the year.  And as always the program never ceases to touch many of the students and teachers who experience its power and magic. The following three testimonials sum it all up really.

This gem from yr 7 Beaudesert Primary student Rohan

It seemed as though we were dancing for joy as the rain finally came down. After the yummy food while the log fire burned, and amid music and laughter, dancers were twirling and swinging as the Boonah Brush and Shovel Bush Band had us stripping willows and surfing the waves of Bondi.

 

It was great to have the band back again this year… always a delight to have them. It was also delightful to see one big happy family of all ages that included new people to the mountain and babies of 5 months right through to an 84 year old gran all having a blast. We feel so lucky that such wonderful people keep coming and supporting Wild Mountains.

Once again grade 6 students from Boronia Heights concluded the year’s Earthkeepers program. This was Boronia’s 6th visit to Wild Mountains and the students were a credit to their school and their teachers Lisa Maloney and Allan Potts as well as their chaplain Terry.

 

As per usual amid all the fun and activities, some serious learning about the systems of life on earth helped round off their scientific understandings. They all got in touch with the natural world in some very unusual ways as well as doing some fantastic exploring.
