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 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.)
Beside the Blewit another striking mushroom is the Purple Gilled Laccaria. Unlike the Blewit that grows under pines this large species of Laccaria can be found in either opened oak forests or grassy fields. Mixed in with other wild edible mushrooms they make a tasty addition to soups, stews or risotto.
We will be search for these along with Fall Oysters, Velvet Foot, Fawn Mushrooms and more.
