2020 Sightings Map

The 2020 Morel season overall was a good season for most. The first official sighting of the season was reported in Georgia in February and the 2020 map was officially open for business! The season had a hiccup with an unusual cold blast in the Midwest but morels were still being reported. All-in-all, it was a good year for many! For a more complete summary, check out the 2020 Morel Season Summary page.

The Great Morel would like to thank each and everyone who contributed to help make the 2020 Sightings map successful once again!

If you have issues not 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.


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 20 most recent sightings along with images and notes if they were sent – there is a “more pages” button at the bottom of this table.

93262 Sequoia National Park , CA 6/26/2020

Found a total of 5 on June 26th in Sequoia National Park under a recently burnt Sequoia Redwood tree! They were about a mile away from the world's largest tree, General Sherman. Definitely an extremely lucky find! They were at about 6,000 feet elevation and completely dried out, but not rotted away because of the lack of moisture there in the summer. Not really edible anymore unfortunately. I was just hiking through the park not looking for morels at all, especially considering I'm a North Carolina resident lol.

Found two yelows - Wet day, first time out looking, found one in a big of a boggy area, about 4" high, second one a few feet away, only 2". Looked all over the woods everywhere in the area, didnt find any more. I dont know if these are the end? I hope not, but due to my inexperience, I dont know yet! Wish I had taken some pics, but gave to a friend for them to enjoy.
