    Poison Oak:

    Montalvo consistently works to remove poison oak from the grounds; however there is always a chance of contact. Visitors should be aware of what poison oak looks like to help avoid accidental contact.

    What does poison oak look like?

    • Each leaf has 3 small leaflets.
    • It most often grows as a shrub.
    • It may have yellow-white berries.

    If contact does occur please follow these procedures:

    • Rinse the skin immediately with lukewarm, soapy water.
    • Wash all clothing and items that may have come in contact with the plant.
    • Apply calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream to the area of contact.
    • Avoid scratching.

    How to protect yourself from contact with poison oak:

    • Wear long pants, long sleeves, boots and gloves.
    • If you do not have boots, tuck the legs of your pants into your socks.
