Join us along the scenic Elizabeth River Trail as we embark on a 1.25-mile round trip walk from Chelsea to the picturesque Plum Point Park and back.

What Awaits You:
Experts will unravel the secrets of urban river otters that now thrive along the Elizabeth River. Plum Point Park is a haven for these playful and elusive creatures. Learn about their habits, habitats, and the vital role they play in our ecosystem. Armed with curiosity and keen eyes, we’ll search for evidence of our river’s otters. Tracks, scat, and perhaps even a glimpse of these charismatic animals—every step holds a clue!

Along the way, soak in the breathtaking vistas of the Elizabeth River and gain a newfound appreciation for the delicate balance of nature in our city.
