PSA – WILD PARSNIP ⚠️
Yesterday, a local farmer near Outlook, SK, warned people to be on the lookout for Wild Parsnip growing in the province. It’s a very dangerous plant that can cause blisters on the skin and even temporary or permanent blindness. Please memorize what this plant looks like and share with your family and friends.
According the Ministry of Agriculture, the main infestations are along Highway 48 from Vibank to Kipling, between Saskatoon and Rosthern and Highway 40 from Cutknife to Neilburg.
Any sightings of wild parsnip should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
