VSU geographers open an ecological and ethnographic festival in Divnogorie

On 3 June, two days prior to Ecologist's Day, an ecological and ethnographic festival was opened in Divnogorie dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the nature reserve. The event was held within the framework of the activities of the Voronezh regional centre for the development of geographical education in schools of the Faculty of Geography, Geoecology, and Tourism.

It was organised by the Divnogorie nature reserve together with the Voronezh regional office of the Russian Geographical Society and the Faculty of Geography, Geoecology, and Tourism. The participants included schoolchildren who had won the competition “Geography of the 21st century”, 2nd and 3rd year students of the Faculty of Geography, Geoecology, and Tourism, and representatives of Voronezh State Pedagogical University. Among the organisers were lecturers from the Faculty of Geography, Geoecology, and Tourism: Olga Sushkova, Maria Derevyagina, Evgenia Zhigulina, and Vadim Sviridov.

During the opening ceremony, the expedition and research team from the Faculty of Geography, Geoecology, and Tourism, headed by Associate Professors Valery Bevs and Anatoly Gorbunov, was awarded the flag of the Voronezh regional office of the Russian Geographical Society. The team is currently conducting a landscape-ecological study of the territory of the nature reserve.

The festival’s programme included folk songs of the Voronezh Region performed by children folk music group Kanareiki (Children’s Art School No. 4, head teacher – Mikhail Grebennikov), as well as ethnographic and paleogeographic quizzes. The participants of the festival were also offered an extended tour dedicated to the geological and paleontological history of Divnogorie and the Voronezh Region (exhibition “The Earth’s Childhood”). Igor Nazarov, a senior researcher at the reserve, talked about the history and the nature of the region, and the culture of peoples inhabiting it at various times.
