ORWELL — Mushroom expert Meg Madden is back at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell to lead another of her popular mushroom exploration walks. Held on Sunday, Sept. 18, the walk runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Participants will get the opportunity to look for and learn about mushrooms on Mount Independence, and, if they participated in the walk in June, observe how the mushrooms have changed.
