Mold spores become abundant during rainy periods, especially in the fall when plants are decomposing, providing good media for mold growth.     

Pollen and mold reporting is performed on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Counts are avaialble also by calling the Air Quality Hotline at (907) 343-4899. The Department of Health and Human Services has developed a pollen calendar based on data collected in Anchorage in previous years. The calendar provides a general idea of when particular types of pollen are released and most prevalent in Anchorage. Click here for the Anchorage Pollen and Mold Calendar.
