2021 March Newsletter

Spring is in the air! Well, at least for those in the south it is in the air. Others will have to wait out Old Man Winter’s lingering effects a while longer. Either way, that means morels will be upon us soon!
The Great Morel hopes all of your winter hibernating was healthy and enjoyable, but now we ready ourselves for morel hunting. That time of year when the woods rejuvenates with life, when the birds chirp with joy, when the morels start to pop, and once again life is good!
