"No Mow May" Is Taking Off

In case you didn’t know, there’s a movement called “No Mow May.”

Instead of having perfectly manicured lawns, homeowners let their yards become wild so that bees and butterflies, among other creatures, can enjoy a natural habitat. The totals are in for last month, and over five thousand homeowners signed up for the now annual event.

The jokes pour in about the shaggy yards, but Israel Del Toro, an assistant professor of biology at Lawrence University, says “In the last 50 years we’ve really seen a global decline in insect biodiversity and pollinator biodiversity, and we need pollinators to survive. About a third of our crops in the U.S. are pollinator-dependent.”

Take that as a go-ahead to let your yard grow and don’t be surprised if you see even MORE wild yards next spring!
