May is usually the time to find morels (Morchella esculenta) in Kalamazoo but the season varies, which makes finding these elusive mushrooms even more difficult. The last couple of years, I've come up nearly empty-handed.  Yesterday, I found morels growing in my own backyard.

Morels are so popular that the Kalamazoo Gazette featured news of early finds this year.  You can also find online maps and morel forums discussing morel finds across the US.
