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 planet’s life support systems and reconnected with nature through exploration and discovery. Sharing their magic spot experiences led to this gem from Rohan below…

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 acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which it occupies, and respects Elders past, present and emerging.
