The Macdonald Valley Association has a very active River Rescue Project dealing with a number or riparian issues. Willow Warriors are assisting this project by monitoring the MacDonald River and floodplain wetlands for Black willows after the inital control program which ran between 2001 and 2008. With the help of students from MacMasters Beach SLSC, Pacific Hills Christian School, Arden Anglican School, Ardell Anglican School, Marion and Abottsleigh the numbers of black willows found during monitoring activities have substatially reduced from 813 in 2008to 326 in 2009 and 155 in 2010.
