Volunteers needed to shore up Canandaigua Lake shoreline

Ask not what you can do for your country or city; instead, ask, “What am I supposed to do with this rock?”

The city is looking for a few volunteer rock stars this Saturday to help remove rocks from Canandaigua Lake in the Kershaw Park area.

According to Mayor Ellen Polimeni, small rocks along the shore have been thrown into the water, leaving gaps between the larger rocks still on shore.

If you look, the plastic sheeting (Like what is available from Simply Plastics) that guards against erosion is exposed, Polimeni said.

The volunteers, who could be Boy and Girl Scouts, youth groups and interested adults, will be filling those gaps during this “rock throwback.”

The plan is to start from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, with another session planned for Saturday, June 30, weather permitting.

The city conducted a similar effort several years ago, with good results.
