    Wild Parsnip Warnings

    Working outdoors or along the roadside?  Beware of the Wild Parsnip plant .  Looking very similar to the white Queen Anne’s Lace, this yellow or green version is not so innocent.   The Department of Heath advises people to avoid the sap or juice produced by this plant.   Serious skin burns and rashes can occur.   Wash with soap and water as soon as possible if you come in contact with this plant.  For more information see the complete article here.    http://www.healthvermont.gov/enviro/outdoor/wildparsnip.aspx
