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.  Wild Mountains has a vision of a world where people lead fulfilling lives while sharing the earth’s resources with all of the life forms on this planet and without degrading our life support systems. We believe the best way of achieving this is through education. In response, Wild Mountains has the vision of a world class centre where environmental education in a natural setting is the cornerstone of learning.Our vision sees people sharing life’s amazing natural wonders through programs that help them to understand their relationship to the natural world and inspire them to lead environmentally conscious lifestyles.As well we see Wild Mountains’ supporters participating in the functioning of a centre that demonstrates new technologies in its building infrastructure, power and waste management, and sound land stewardship for the benefit of future generations.

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.

We at Wild Mountains recognise the traditional custodians, acknowledging that they are part of the oldest living culture on earth, living on, shaping and managing this land for tens of thousands of years. The Midginberri tribe of the Yugambeh language grouping are the traditional custodians, who continue to have an enduring connection to this land. As present carers we acknowledge thier culture and story and endeavour to the best of our abilities to nurture this land for future generations.

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.

 

Lizz- for the earth.

Fantastic that we have onboard new directors Emma and Geoffrey who were both unanimously voted in at our recent AGM.

 

In 1991 Wild Mountains first encountered Emma Scragg as a young student whose original concept drawings for the centre later translated into what people so enthusiastically react to once here. As a working professional and now with her own business, Emma‘s architecture has always centered around sustainability. She has supported Wild Mountains over the many years and it is lovely that her...
