River otters are making appearances all over the East Bay, says Sharol Nelson-Embry, the supervising naturalist at the East Bay Regional Park District's Crab Cove Visitor Center in Alameda.

Otters have been sighted at Oakland's Lake Merritt and Lake Temescal in the past two weeks, says Nelson-Embry, who blogs for Alameda Patch and for KQED Science.
