Russian Department Mushroom Foraging Expedition!

ПО ГРИБЫ": Russian dept. mushrooming expedition! On Sunday September 26, students and professors from the Russian dept. (and elsewhere) went for a delightful romp in the early-autumn woods on and around the Appalachian Trail / Velvet Rocks area. We found heaps and heaps of mushrooms; although only a small number of them were prized edibles (including king bolete—белый гриб, hedgehog mushroom—ежовик and honey mushroom––опёнок), there was plenty of learning and exploring on a beautiful afternoon. Best of all, we concluded by singing songs in Russian, Serbian, Macedonian and Italian with guitar accompaniment from Italian dept. resident advisor Andrea Zoller.
