A few brown snake sightings have been reported during the past week on campus – a young brown in the in the northern garden bed area of Wine Innovation Central and another underneath the Pest Plant Glasshouse at the top of Hartley Grove. There are warning signs in place.
The warm weather means there is always the possibility of snake sightings around Campus or during field activities.
