Plants to avoid when hiking or camping in Canada

On Shine from Yahoo Canada

“Learning how to spot harmful plants in the Canadian outdoors can not only save you some uncomfortable reactions like swelling and itching, but it could save your life. Here are 10 to be especially careful of, and how to spot them if you come across them in the woods. By Caitlin McCormack.”

For all those plants with urushiol resin (such as Poison Ivy, Poison Oak and Poison Sumac) that you, or your pets, might come into contact with – don’t forget to get your Tecnu Skin Cleanser from Mountain Equipment Co-op stores or from our Tecnu on-line store, to remove the resin before it spreads the rash.
