Morel Mushroom Sightings – Maps

The morel sighting maps are a great way to help each other out a little bit.  Some refer the maps as the morel progression maps and they have always been a favorite. The Great Morel is often asked “is it time yet?” or “are there morel sightings in my neck of the woods?”  A great resource on when one might begin their foraging adventure. Below are the new and improved interactive Sightings Map which were incorporated in 2017. There are also seven years of the old fashioned Historical Sightings Maps below too.

If you would like to submit a sighting, the guidelines are pretty simple…Zip, City, State and date found. If you want to add any additional information such as county, weather conditions, or an image that is fine. Sightings will be posted daily during prime morel season.

2020 Morel Sightings Map

The 2020 Morel season is finally on for some and fast approaching for others…  The first official sighting of the season has been reported in Georgia in February- it goes without saying – the 2020 map is officially open for business! The season is a bit early, but morels are out there!  The early Georgia reports are a sign for many that the season is finally approaching.

The Great Morel would like to thank each and everyone who contribute to help make the sightings maps the place to report!  Don’t forget to visit The Morel Store for those special occasions and gift ideas for the Shroomer in your life! Also, don’t forget to read some of the great articles and spend some time.

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 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.

2019 Morel Sightings Map

The 2019 Morel season has slipped by…  The first sighting of the season was reported in mid January with what some might refer to as a  “landscape morel” – it goes without saying – the 2019 map at that point was officially open for business!  As spring progressed the morels were heading north and as they made their migration the overall feeling of a pretty good year in 2019 was in full swing . All-in-all it was a typical morel season in general as some regions struggled, while others were having a blue ribbon type of year.  You can get the summary by hitting The 2019 Morel Season Summary page and get the more detailed .

The Great Morel would like to thank each and everyone of you who contributed to help make the sightings maps the place to report!  Don’t forget to visit The Morel Store for those special occasions and gift ideas for the Shroomer in your life.

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

Pheasantbacks are already up, and should be picked as soon as possible. The younger the better, and they get too tough when they’re old.

2017 Morel Sightings Map

The morel sightings reports were really good for most in the 2017 season…from the early southern morel hunters to the northern parts of the US. Reports from the northern Midwest States were good with the weather seeming to cooperate for most people.  As the great morel made its annual migration, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ontario and those way up north were saying “its all good” too. New York was blessed with a good year as well. For most in  PA, OH, IN, IL, and Iowa it was pretty much a better than average year. The Pacific Northwest continued to have an above average year too. 2017 for most may be one of the best overall years many have seen in some time with Mother Nature lending her cooperation along the way.

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