Willow Warriors Weekend

Over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday the 5th and 6th of February 2011, Illawarra Youth Landcare teamed up with Willow Warriors to go on their annual ‘Source to Sea’ paddle along the Grose, Colo and Hawkesbury Rivers.

Volunteers met up with a range of different Landcare and Bushcare groups along the way and learned a great deal about the different issues facing these riverside Landcare groups and the types of techniques they were using to overcome issues such as weed infestation and erosion problems.

It was a fantastic weekend, despite the 46 degree temperatures. Activities included over 20km of paddling, lantana treatment and removal, weed identification, bass fishing and lots of BBQs!
