Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!
Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W
Exits from this roundabout to Line 26 are now closed. This first phase of construction should not significantly affect through traffic on Hwy 7; however, from July 2nd until October, the roundabout will be closed to all traffic. Detours will be signposted, and drivers should allow extra time to follow them.
Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov
Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.
Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress
Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)
Late Spring Foraging with Puck's Plenty
Sunday Jun. 16th, 2019
10 am - 1 pm
Host: Puck's Plenty Foraging Tours
Father's Day Foraging
"Okay, so where are the featured plants and mushrooms??" Hold on a minute. We just thought how fortunate it was that Father's Day coincided with the highpoint of the Nettle season. The plants are four to five feet tall, leaves are large. Sure, the stingers are there but all you need are gloves and you're ready to make some of the best recipes Mother Nature has to offer. Including Nettle Beer! There's a field of them ready to be picked. And, of course, we'll be handing out recipes.
The trails will also provide us with Oyster Mushrooms, Pheasant Backs, Wild Watercress . . . the list goes on.
