No Mow May

No Mow May is an environmental initiative to encourage property owners to mow their lawns less frequently during the month of May to help bees, butterflies and other pollinators.  Longer grass allows these important insects to gain pollinator-friendly habitats and vital resources, increasing their chance of survival.

Other ways to help:

  • If growing your entire lawn is not an option, consider leaving swatches of land untouched and rotating the swatch with each mow.
  • Visit one of our Library Branches with a child to pick up free flower seeds to plant and watch them grow and attract bees and butterflies.
  • Plant native trees, flowers and other plants for both you and the pollinators to enjoy year after year.
