Figure 7. Cypress swamp and pond at First Landing State Park, Virginia. Covering a significant portion of the Cape Henry beach ridge complex in Virginia Beach, the park attracts more than a million visitors annually. It is surrounded by a military base and housing subdivisions. The major issues that arise as park managers work to maintain several coastal zone habitats commonly stem from excessive foot and pleasure boat traffic and groundwater withdrawal from nearby wells.
