My name is Tom Collins and have started a new educational group called the Sacramento Valley Outdoor Education.
Shannon has allowed me to cross post this event here.
For our first event of this meetup, something that's important to us all, and it's FREE...
Poison Oak: It's an evil plant that's here to cause us misery. So I have developed this free class to help everyone either avoid or reduce this misery.
Identification: This will help you identify poison oak, and it's many forms, as well as some commonly misidentified plants. I will briefly also talk about two of poison oak's evil siblings, poison ivy & poison sumac, in case you do any traveling.
Prevention: How to avoid ever getting poison oak. Lots of information here.
Treatment: What to do when, despite your best efforts, you end up getting poison oak anyway.
The Class: Will last for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. It will involve a lecture, including samples, lots of Q & A, and a small walk to identify poison oak in the wild. There's even some new exciting news about this subject that I will share with you.
Parking: The Sacramento County Parks Dept is allowing us to park at this event for free. Registered attendees will be emailed a parking pass.
About Me: I have spent hundreds of hours studying everything there is to know about the subject, and am now an expert in it.
Registering: You may register here. If you'd like to learn more about the group, you can go here. http://goo.gl/elA1r
