Garter Snakes are part of a balanced ecosystem.  They come out this time of year to stretch and sun themselves.  They are important in keeping rodent and frog populations balanced.  These snakes are also food for some larger animals like great blue herons.  This snake is non-poisonous.  Can you find the snake in the pile of kindling?
