What to Wear

Equipment

Just in Case

Know what poison ivy looks like in its various forms and seasons. If you think you may have contacted it, wash exposed areas with Fels Naptha soap ASAP. If you are severely allergic to poison ivy, apply one of the topical lotions available through local pharmacies which can be applied before contact.

Be sure your tetanus booster is up to-date - repeat every 8 years.
