Wildlife at the lagoon

The lagoon that sits between Fort Cronkhite and Rodeo Beach is also of interest. Here, lucky visitors may be able to spot North American river otters. These crafty and charismatic critters are starting to make a comeback in the bay area after decades of conservationists working to restore the health of the wetlands.
