Urban Wildlife on Display in Richmond

A river otter scratches an itch somewhere in the James River Park.

I was poking around the Friends of the James River Park’s Facebook page the other day and found something I’d forgotten about for months. A couple of years ago, the Friends installed a number of trail cams — motion-activated video cameras — throughout the James River Park System’s over 500 acres. Since they’ve been active, the cameras have captured everything from red foxes to beavers to river otters to deer to coyotes (and much, much more) going about their business along the James River.

There’s so much good video, it has it’s own Facebook page, and it’s a great reminder of the incredible amount of wildlife that calls the city of Richmond home. Click here to check it out.
