Morel Mushroom Sightings – Maps

The Great Morel is often asked “is it time yet?” or “are there morel sightings in my neck of the woods?

The morel sighting maps are a great way to help each other out a little bit. They have always been a favorite and a good resource on when one might begin their foraging adventure. Below is the new and improved interactive Sightings Map which we began using 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, or an image that is fine. Sightings will be posted daily during prime morel season.

2018 Morel Sightings Map

The 2018 Morel season is officially underway!  The first sighting of the season was reported in the early part of March and it is “game on” for many regions in the US!  Sightings are coming in daily and it looks promising for many and slow for others. The weather continues to be a menace and is not being kind to some. Still having snow and colder than normal temps in many areas.  Looks like most should see a return to more normal temperatures in the coming days. Mid to early April reports had shoormers saying they were early but with the odd temperature swings it is hard to determine.  Check your hot spots early because who knows?!?!?  Look for continued sighting reports coming from a woods near you. May everyone have a bountiful season as it comes your 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.

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.
