The Great Morel is often asked “is it time yet?” or “are they popping in my neck of the woods?”. The sighting maps are here to see if we can’t help each other out a little bit. The sightings maps have always been a favorite and a good tool on when one might start their foraging adventure.
Below is the new and improved 2017 Sightings Map and there are seven years of the old fashioned Historical Sightings Maps below as well. If you would like to submit a sighting, the guidelines are simple…Zip, City, State and date found. If you want to add additional information such as county that is fine but keep it simple. Sightings will be posted daily during prime morel season.

There are plenty of features on the new interactive map – zoom, filter by month, full screen and more. Below the map you can find a table listing of the most recent sightings along with images and notes if they were sent – there is a “more pages” button at the bottom of this table.
