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.

We managed to get almost an entire internal mud render build coat on during the weekend with 12 adults and 11 kids. 

Some special moments were the making of "Sisters in Mud" (see piccy below) or the time when Pallas (age 7) exclaimed in full attitude to " Get your mud on." Thanks to everyone in the making of this weekend- its one that will go down in the history of the making of Whiptail.
