Every week here at Something Wild we encourage you to go outside. It's easy to find the wild in New Hampshire, be it a walk on the beach, a hike in the woods or a quiet crepuscular kayak ride. However there are things you need to be mindful of when you're out. We've heard a lot about ticks but not so much about poison ivy.
You've probably seen or come into contact with poison ivy at some point; the three waxy leaves with serrated edges. You probably also know you should avoid it. Don't touch touch the vine, don't touch the root. You can get a rash from any part of the plant.
