The Snowy River willow monitoring project is part of the Willows out of Our Rivers project that is mapping willows by taxa across South East NSW to update the data available of willow distribution. At the same time where resources are available Black Willows and Grey Sallow Willows are being treated where we have landowner consent. If we find evidence that other willows are seeding we will also be helping landowners with managing these willows where resource are available.
Over the last few years an intensive riparian restoration project inclduing willows control has been taking pllace along the snowy in preparation for the increased flows to be released from the Jindabyne dam. As such this catchment is a low priority for Willows Warriors although we do see a roll for recreation paddlers in monitoring the river in the future.
