The 2018 Morel season has left us! The first sighting of the season was reported in the early part of March and the last was reported in June. All in all it was a good season for most morel hunters even with the odd spring weather which did create havoc for a lot of folks. The Great Morel’s recap in detail of the 2018 Morel season can be found here – 2018 summary of the various regions. The Great Morel would like to thank each and everyone of you who have contributed this season to help make the sightings maps the place to report! May everyone have wonderful off-season and don’t forget to visit The Morel Store for those special occasions and gift ideas for the Shroomer in your life!
If you have issues with the latest sightings markers, try un-checking a month in the bottom left corner of the map and then rechecking the box next to the month. It should refresh correctly.

Not much rain, doesn’t help the black morels. Looked for over 3 hours extensively on Thursday 5/24 and could only find false morels everywhere I went. After a rainfall there could be major growth coming soon.

Much dryer spring early on, not much rain to help out the black morels. White morels should be popping up after this weekend’s rain.
