Who are Willow Warriors & what do we do?
Willow Warriors is an Adventure Conservation Group. Our volunteers seek to combine the excitement of white-water rafting, flat water kayaking and having fun in the outdoors with Landcare conservation activities.
Whilst the groups Organisational goal is very broad our current activities fall into two categories:
We paddle rivers and wetlands in rafts or kayaks to map and, where possible, treat seeding willows like black willows and grey sallow willows in south east New South Wales to prevent them spreading into National Parks and other areas of high conservation value. Where we map large infestations of seeding willows we report them to the regional weed committee, public land owner and CMA to take action, and after primary control assit with ongoing monitoring
Whilst monitoring rivers and wetlands the for seding willows we also assit locala landcare groupw with weed mapping and followup treatment of other environmental weeds in areas of high conservation value
