The goal of "No Mow May" is to pause mowing lawns during May to allow flowering plants to help provide food for pollinators. Early spring is a time where floral resources are often limited for pollinators, especially in urban and suburban landscapes. Learn more about the reasons behind "No Mow May," how to participate, and how to make your yard more pollinator-friendly.
