Willow Warriors are involved in two linked projects on the Upper Murrumbidgee River.
1) A regional willow mapping project run by the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment Coordinating Committee (UMCCC) for which Willow Warriors are providing willow mapping data along the sections of river we can paddle. To date we have provided willow data by taxa in 200meter transects along the Murrumbidgee river from Cooma pumping station to McLeods Road, Hall. This data will be consolidated with other data sources from the smaller waterways and wetlands, which is to be used to review the results of Willows Management in the upper catchment.
2) A black willow control project run by the Upper Murrumbidgee Landcare Committee specifically targeting Black willlows. Willow Warriors provided the mapping data and are treating the black willows where we have landowner consent.
