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!

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Summer Foraging with Pucks Plenty

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.

Cost: $35/Per person

Location: Meet at 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford
