It should also be noted that there will be exceptions to this list to accommodate lost item searches with the appropriate authority's permission and prohibitions where posted as such.

A few common sense suggestions: Schools should be hunted only when classes are not being held and few, if any, faculty members are present. If an area is fenced and the gates are locked, stay out. If an area is posted as 'No Tresspassing', stay out. Do not hunt after dark. If a grass patch looks manicured, it's best not to dig it.
