You are right, they do hibernate:
Smooth Greensnakes emerge in April or May and mate by late spring or summer. Females lay one to two clutches of four to six eggs, which are laid from June to September. Nests are located in rotting vegetation, beneath logs or flat stones, and in small mammal burrows. Young snakes are dark olive or blue-gray in coloration. Adult and young snakes are active until late September when they spend the rest of the year hibernating below ground. Preferred hibernacula include rodent burrows and subsurface ant chambers. It is not uncommon for Smooth Greensnakes to overwinter communally with Ring-necked Snakes, Dekay's Brownsnakes, Red-bellied Snakes, and Common Gartersnakes.
