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.

This allowed us to add on some special Earth Education activities such as a Ramble and a Viewing Party.

 

These kids like so many Steiner children fully engaged with the experiential learning techniques Earthkeepers has to offer. They were into everything taking it all in.

Wild Mountains was pleased to host a local Brissie Kundalini Yoga group running a national "Women's Camp". The gathering brought together teachers and students from around Australia, to create positive change and support others on their journey.
