Dan Rodricks: Video proof of otters in Baltimore’s Jones Falls stream. How do you like that?

May 5, 2023

Though an urban waterway, hard by transit systems, the waters of the Jones Falls attract wildlife. (Baltimore Sun) A few years after the Civil War, a man named William Moody Chase created a stereograph, a three dimensional photograph, of a place called Otter Rock, somewhere along the 18 miles of the Jones Falls as it flows through Baltimore County into the city. We can assume that Otter Rock was so named for good reason: Otters were once common in a river that, 150 years later, we associate more with pollution than with wildlife.
