The North American racer has been listed as a species of special concern in Minnesota since 1984. It has a large range across the United States, but its numbers have fallen in Minnesota and elsewhere. The snake may be found in the area to be mined, but no regulations exist to protect it so there’s no requirement to avoid it.
