Augusta Township: keep an eye out for wild parsnip plants

Some dangerous invasive plants are starting to appear in our region. 

Augusta Township staff members are urging residents to watch out for wild parsnip plants when they’re outdoors working, walking their dogs or supervising children playing outside. 

The plant, which has yellowish-green flowers and grows up to five feet tall, has sap that makes your skin extremely sensitive to sunlight, causing severe burns. 

If you think you see wild parsnip growing on United Counties land, you’re being urged to contact the Counties’ Weed Inspector to have it safely removed. 

You can find the contact details, and a list of other invasive plants and weeds to watch out for, on the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville website.
