POISON IVY ~ Safety Message:

Click on image for more info


Poison ivy is found throughout the State, primarily on drier sites often in association with oak and sometimes near the edge of fields of along fence rows. It has 3 waxy dark green leaflets that are lighter and more fuzzy on the underside. It grows as a woody shrub or vine that climbs up trees. Poison ivy produces a white berry that persists from fall through the winter. ~~ message from the U.S. Dept of Agriculture.


SNAKE ADVISORY ~ Dangers of the Forest: Two poisonous snakes are known to occur in our State Forests although neither is common. These include the northern copperhead and the timber rattlesnake. Anyone who is bitten by a poisonous snake should seek prompt medical attention.

One of the most distinguishing features of poisonous snakes (pit vipers) is the diamond-shaped head that is well defined from the neck. These poisonous snakes have fangs, and elliptical pupils (as opposed to round pupils in nonpoisonous snakes).
