Where are people finding morel mushrooms in KS and MO

It’s that time of year again! Spring has sprung and people from across Missouri and Kansas are hunting for morel mushrooms. Some have been reporting great results this season.

Morels like it when it starts to get around 60 degrees and above during the day, and night temperatures hover around 40 degrees. Morels start popping up when the earth gets between 45 and 50 degrees.

If you have never been morel hunting before, it’s a great way to get some exercise and spend some time in nature. Not to mention the delicious recipes you can find using morels.

If you’re a beginner, this interactive map is a great tool to show you where sightings have been reported. The website also has some great tips and info for a successful trip.
