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
Daytime delays may be possible during August, however, all roads and the round-about are open.
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.)
Summer Foraging with Pucks Plenty
Sunday Aug. 25th, 2019
10 am - 1 pm
Host: Puck's Plenty Foraging Tours
Besides the Gem Studded and Giant Puffballs, this time of year also features the Pear Shaped Puffball. Another mushroom rated as "choice" you can find them from July to November on well decayed hardwood or emanating from buried rotted wood underneath the forest floor. About the size of Button Mushrooms they are a wonderful addition to many recipes. Like all members of the Puffball Family their interior must be solid white before consuming. The Pear Shaped can be found in the same areas as Summer Oysters, Honey Mushrooms and several varietis of Boletes.
August has always been a marvelous month for mushroom hunting. And so, the trails await.
