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.

It is virtually 10 years to the month since we held our open day with over 100 supporters coming to Wild Mountains to see what all of the fuss was about. And on our last VW the pole in their honor was raised in the amphitheatre garden.

By 2002 Wild Mountains had embarked on a daring and ambitious project: fundraising $750,000 for the construction of the Main Hall and Amenities Block. The target seemed improbable and yet once everyone came up on a weekend in August of that year and we were able to reveal the plans and drawings of what we wanted to construct, give them a taste of the programs we wanted to run, feed them the yummy vegetarian food that all of our visitors, including students get and share in the Wild Mountains dream, the positive energy of that day was palpable, and the goal suddenly seemed not so far off.

Over the next few years the money was raised, the buildings...

Last week Wild Mountains finished its largest Earthkeepers program. Forty year 5-7 eco-club students from Beaudesert State Primary experienced an action packed 3 days full of mystery, adventure, fun and learning.

The students learned scientific concepts about our planets life support systems and reconnected with nature through exploration and discovery. Sharing their magic spot experiences led to this gem from Rohan below

... I am here in my magic spot and as I sit quietly listening to the sounds of nature and thinking about the future and what Im really going to do and what s going to happen, I think about the environment and why we really need to keep it healthy.

And in amongst all the activities the apprentice Earthkeepers saw a python...
