The Good and the Bad
One of the hazards of stream improvement work is coming in contact with Poisen Ivy or Poisen Sumac. To the right is a Poisen Ivy plant that was very abundant along the river channel where we were working. To the left is a Jewel Weed which has great healing properties and if you split the stem and rub the juices onto your skin it can help prevent or reduce the skin irritation of the Poisen Ivy. Jewel weed can also be rubbed on your hands to reduce cracking and splitting or other skin irritations.
