Gustavus senior and snake wrangler Ellen Miller

The Gustavus GEG 105 Introduction to Physical Geography class took at tour of the Linnaeus Arboretum on Tuesday, March 27, to learn about the biomes of Minnesota. Gustavus senior Ellen Miller holds a garter snake that was sunning itself in the woods. While many people have an aversion to snakes, garter snakes are harmless and even beneficial as they eat  pests like mosquito larvae.
