Garter Brumation in Oregon

I currently live in Ashland, Oregon, and a few weeks ago I heard a friend mention seeing a garter snake in the local park. Now I haven't seen anything myself, but it's the right kind of environment for garters. I know they brumate during the winter (which is approaching quickly), and that they brumate below the frost line, but I'm looking to collect some of the snakes while brumating, so I can breed them and enjoy studying them in captivity. Does anyone know where I should look for Garter snakes brumating?

If you come up to the north west oregon the garter snakes are so populous you can't even go into your backyard without a garter suddenly skitting away. I do not really think its wise to collect garters from the wild unless you can afford the vet bill to have them all treated for parasites. In regards to where they are i have found any woodland with water, grasshoppers, crickets, and frogs has garters in oregon.

I wish I could help. I live in Douglas County and I haven't seen many around all year.
