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.

Both men have assessed the impact on their directorship roles of their challenging and busy lives, complete with issues that can sometimes drive one to despair or to running around in ever decreasing circles…. something that many of us can relate to.

 

Both were finding it increasingly difficult to do justice to their directorship roles and felt it in Wild Mountains best interests to stand down and allow others to take over their positions.

Check out the images for the progress on the shed :) Great helpers, great outcomes. 

I came across a article in the National Geographic sharing some scientific research on the fact we feel better when we get into nature. It was an entretaining article and had some good points on the value of getting out and reconnecting with nature. Weather in your own back yard, local park or the pristine wild. The article suggested that reconnecting with nature at any level was a good thing. We get to see this all the time- below Cecilia, an exchange student from Denmark doing Law shared her thoughts with us. In our comings and goings lets work to remember what underpins it all and supports our lives- Nature.
