Watch for Poisonous Plants

 Girl holding non-poisonous plants/herbs outside

Poisonous plants can grow virtually anywhere, from remote fields and forests to parks and backyards. Spending time outdoors relaxing or having fun can lead to unexpected contact with poisonous plants, which could harm both humans and pets. This guide will help you identify these in your yard to make it a safe place for your family to play and interact with nature.  The guide was submitted by Paisley Stricker and her Mom, Penelope.  Thanks Strickers!
