Commentary

Thanks for the report. Frankly, Benton County is inundated with poison hemlock this year. It's great to know about these populations that are near walking and biking trails because these are places where kids and others might come into contact with the plant. All parts of the plant are toxic! I'll make Parks aware of this report. Thanks again, Michael Ahr, Benton Cooperative Weed Management Area
