No Mow May is a community science initiative that encourages property owners to limit lawn mowing practices during the month of May to provide early season foraging resources for pollinators that emerge in the spring, especially in urban landscapes when few floral resources are available.
No Mow May is an optional, opt-in activity for residents wishing to participate. The City has identified some public spaces where mowing will be suspended in May; rental facilities and some other high-use facilities will continue to be mowed.
Please let us know that you are planning to participate in No Mow May. There is no fee to sign up, and yard signs will be provided for the first 50 participating properties to let your neighbors know about the initiative.
