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 had just run its first Earthkeepers program with 34 students from the Brisbane Montessori School.

Every year we reach out to schools in the region inviting their students to partake in what is arguably a most amazing program. We have had public and private schools, catholic schools and steiner schools but had yet to get Montessori onboard.
