Morel Mushroom Hunting

icon for mi morels app

Please note, we cannot guarantee the presence of morel mushrooms at these locations!

Large burn sites in forested areas are ideal for morel mushroom hunting, especially in burned areas where jack, white or red pine once grew. Grassy and other non-forest areas are not as likely to produce morels.

This map shows large prescribed burns (10+ acres) or wildfires that occurred last year. If you zoom in close, you will also be able to see the type of ground cover in a particular area (conifer, wetlands, grass, etc.).  

For information on morel mushroom hunting in Michigan, visit Pure Michigan or Midwest American Mycological Information.
