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.

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.

2021 Morel Sightings Map

The 2021 Morel season is finally upon us and for many, spring couldn’t get here fast enough. Many still eagerly wait for this map to start getting sightings on it in your own neck of the woods. The Southeastern states had their first official sighting reported Mar 4, 2021, which means many shroomers are already hitting their spots. The Morels are making their late season progression right on time too. While you are here, take time and 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.

If you have issues not seeing 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.

Morel sighting 6/5/21 - I was surprised to find these this late in the season. They were under a shed porch we just built last fall, so shaded. Found eight total in three spots under the porch (right along the edges).

This was at elevation of 994 feet so it’s a bit cooler than some other areas in MA. The mushroom I saw was not quite at peak. It was growing in the shade near our deck.
