Please be aware that in the summer of 2004, Giant Hogweed, a very dangerous plant, was found growing in various areas of the County including Royalton Ravine. All sites located at that time have been destroyed, but should you come across something you suspect may be Giant Hogweed, do not touch the plant. Contact the Parks Department immediately at (716) 439-7951. Giant Hogweed is a public health hazard. It results in severe skin irritation and painful burning blisters that could turn into purplish or brown pigmentation and scarring. It resembles a very large Queen Anne’s Lace plant. Its stems are 9-14 feet high and 2-4 inches in diameter. They are hollow and ridged with purple blotches and coarse hairs. Flowering occurs from mid-June to mid-July and flower clusters may reach 2 ½ feet across. Again, do not touch the plant and contact the Niagara County Parks Department at (716) 439-7951.
