Poison Ivy Citizen Scientist
Year-round Data Collection
Enter the approximate location of your plant using the interactive map, or manually enter GPS coordinates:
Date poison ivy plant was observed:
Approximate maximum poison ivy plant height
(specify if in English or metric units):
Shape of leaf edges/margins
(e.g. even, lobed, # of lobes, or serrated):
Did this plant show any evidence of producing seeds
(either on this date or any prior date)?
Describe any animals or insects observed eating poison ivy leaves:
Optional digital image submissions:
One digital image showing the entire plant:
One digital image of a typical compound leaf (one compound leaf = three leaflets). If possible, have someone hold a one US or Canadian Dollar paper bill next to the leaf for size scale. If you live outside of North America you may use a comparable paper currency:
One digital image of an insect feeding on a poison ivy leaf, or a diseased looking leaf or stem:
