Hey there.  Let’s talk about poisonous plants and mushrooms.

They’re here.  They’re there.  They’re most likely everywhere.  And that’s not such a bad thing.

Many poisonous plants and mushrooms serve important ecological roles in the habitats they occupy, and without these seemingly nefarious species, our fields and forests would suffer.  Tremendously.

In this new video, I discuss one poisonous mushroom (Destroying Angel — Amanita bisporigera) and one poisonous plant (White Snake Root — Ageratina altissima) that I recently encountered while exploring the local park.  If you’re reading this article, there’s a good chance you’ll find at least one of these species on a future walk through your favorite woods.
