THE LAGOON PARK TOUR—WHERE ARE WE SINCE ITS CONSTRUCTION IN 2008?
Saturday, September 8, 2012 10 am to noon.
The Lagoon Park is on Lakeshore Drive in Canandaigua across from the Steamboat Landing Restaurant and circles around to Wegmans. (Meet at the Steamboat Landing parking lot by the road.)
The Lagoon Park was constructed by the City of Canandaigua in 2008 to be a forever-wild area with walking paths, bridges, fishing platforms. Since its inception, beaver, people who wander off the paths, lower water levels, and trees that have fallen and block the natural movement of the water have done much damage. In addition, many invasive plant species have taken over much of the habitat.
We will look at how we can restore the Park to a wider diversity of native flora in the park as well as seeing how to clear waterways and improve the pathways.
