Join us for a fascinating morning walk to explore the toxicology and natural history of some of the most poisonous plants in North America! Native to our forests, fields and wetlands are plants that have killed pioneers by the hundreds, plants that have tricked foragers, and plants that were used as arrow poisons by Native Americans. Learn to identify some of these plants, how and why they are so deadly, and more!  Cosponsors: Friends for the Abbott Marshlands and Mercer County Park Commission. Registration required.
