2020 April Newsletter

As most know, the 2020 Morel season is in full gear for lots of folks out there! While some are enjoying the bountiful harvest of morels, there are others who are sadly are watching their season pass them by, and others who wait patiently. The reports coming in thus far are all positive and many are reporting morels earlier than usual.

That said, everyone needs to hit your spots early – go take a walk in the woods and practice proper social distancing morel style. As we are all going through this crazy time The Great Morel would like to strongly encourage everyone to take this serious, practice your social distancing, and together we’ll kick this thing! It takes all of us to do our part.

Words of Thought…

The Great Morel would like to remind all of us in this crazy time of the Corona virus, to practice good hygiene, safe social distancing, and most of all to help our neighbors. For many, there is this feeling of uncertainty, however, if we all do our little part we will kick this thing and get our lives back! Sadly, this means limiting our usual gatherings where we share our morels with others. Instead, take a fresh batch over to Mom and Dad, or the neighbor, or friends and family. Be safe – keep healthy!

Our daily Instagram posts are going out to everyone. The Great Morel will post the best-of-the-best morel pics as the season progresses and there have been some good ones already. Submit your photography work and see if you make the cut.
The Thursday weekly “Public Service Announcements” have been going out and these are sent with the intent to inform, educate and share in important morel hunting information. If you have an idea for a good PSA, don’t forget to send in your suggestion.
