Welcome to The Great Morel

The Great Morel™ extends a very warm welcome to all its morel mushroom hunting visitors! Morels have once again come and gone and another morel mushroom season has passed us by – the 2020 season has unofficially come to a close!  Yep, the first early morel reports came in from Georgia (Feb 20), and the morels then made their push north. The reports have almost trickled to a stop. Mother Nature was really kind early on and then she wrecked havoc on many. The memories and reflections of the morel season was filled with highs and lows – some bountiful, others not so. The summer months are upon us and the morel has begun its hiatus so we once again find ourselves waiting for the annual ritual of the hunt for ever-elusive great morel.

it is about the annual ritual of the hunt for ever-elusive great morel


As the 2020 season comes to a close, it was certainly filled with mixed results for many morel hunters across the U.S. and Canada. You can read a recap of the 2020 Season Summary report here (coming in late June).  As with most morel seasons, often times morel hunters were blessed with the kindness of Mother Nature, and others were not. The 2020 Season was no exception –nature and the weather can play havoc on the life of the morel! You can check out the sightings page for a summary of the season in the various regions of the US and Canada.
