Summer in the Green Sea

July 29, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

The North Landing River is one of the - if not the - most unique rivers in Virginia. The North Landing River traces its source in the Kempsville area and snakes its way south to the Currituck Sound. It's banks are lined with several different types of ecosystems at you travel south from forested uplands, forested swamp, pocosins, and marsh. The river is home to over 50 rare and threatened species of plants and animals and many unique natural community types. Listed as a Virginia Scenic River, the landscape is varied, beautiful, and nearly undeveloped.

As part of the Southern Watershed, the North Landing River and Back Bay have been in the news frequently the last few years due to the problem of recurrent flooding in Virginia Beach. The North Landing is affected by wind tides. From March through October, the dominant wind direction is southwest. Southerly winds push water from the Albemarle-Pamlico system in North Carolina north, which leads to wind tidal flooding in Virginia Beach.

The North Landing River has been an important waterway throughout the history of Virginia. A source of food, transportation, recreation, hunting and fishing, and now storm water management.

We are in the middle of summer. The marsh is at its peak - green and swaying tall in the wind - the Green Sea. Due to the southerly winds, the water is high, which provide access by boat to many creeks that are otherwise inaccessible. This is a great time to get out on the river and explore!
