So the last step of the first aid badge is to go online and make a list of local plants, animals and insects to avoid. We also need to note how to protect from sunburn and how to treat bug bites, bee stings, sunburn, poison oak, and poison ivy.

I tried googling Dangerous Plants in VA but didn't find much luck. Anyone know of any sites to research that are easy for a kid to navigate?
