Site CGL07: Severn River Landing

Description

There are numerous roads that dead-end along the Virginia shore, almost all of which provide foot and boat access to various habitats. This site is composed of a large cordgrass marsh south of the mouth of the Severn River that faces into Chesapeake Bay. It attracts numerous birds that associate with both the shoreline vegetation and the open channel. The simple boat landing allows canoe and kayak access.
