Poison Ivy is a common woodland plant in southern Manitoba that often causes cachers to go home with Rhus Dermatitis. I have put up a couple of caches that provide information about PI, what it looks like, and some similar looking plants. This cache, unlike 'MB PI Watch', has a lot of PI near the container - be careful, wear long pants, and don't touch those nice plants with three leaflets. You can access the cache without any bush crashing or going off trail.
I hope you find the information on this page and at the cache site both interesting and helpful.
In short remember: "Leaves of three, let it be; berries white, danger in sight."
- Some information on PI (pictures, look alike, general info, etc...)
- PMRA Control of Poison Ivy
- Toxicodendron rybergii - USDA Forestry Service Pamphlet
- The Biology of Poison Ivy from Nature North
I have had several reports that the cache location is about 8m off the actual co-ordinates. Stay on the trail and out of the PI!
