Don't step on me!

We have been creating woodland trails around the park and have made some interesting discoveries.  We were creating the northwestern spring trail and when we moved a downed tree limb coiled under it was an eastern garter snake, very sluggish, but moving.  Elsewhere in the park, we were taking pictures of the spring fed cistern and found an eastern milk snake lying in the bottom.  We are unsure how it got in there but we were able to successfully get it out.  This is just a sample of what you may find hiking on our trails around the park.
