Willow Warriors started the Invasive Willow Monitoring program in 2006 with a program to map willows by taxa along sections of the following rivers in south east New South Wales.
These rivers included the: Colo River, Grose River, Macdonald River, Hawkesbury River, Nepean River, Cattai Creek, Webbs Creek, Wingecarribee River, Wollondilly River, Murrumbidgee River, Goodradigbee River, Goobarragandra River, Tumut River, Eucumbene River, Clyde River, Deua River, Tuross River, Shoalhaven River and Indi River
The invasive Willow monitoring program involves single day rafting and kayaing activities near Sydney and Canberra and overnight or multiday trips either camping along the river or car camping at access points to look for and treat seeding willows growing into view before they produce new seed locally.
