NO MOW MAY
You may notice that library lawns look neglected. They are not.
Scientists say that allowing the grass to grow long in the spring helps bees and other pollinators.
This month, the Norwalk Pollinator Pathway is encouraging residents to take the NO MOW MAY Challenge! The challenge is underway in 12 locations across the City. It encourages residents to let their lawns grow for the whole month of May. Allowing lawns to grow out provides food for beleaguered bees and butterflies that are starving after a long winter. Every flower counts when it comes to providing a meal for our pollinators in early spring. The No Mow May Challenge also mitigates noise and air pollution, as the Environmental Protection Agency attributes 5% of U.S. air pollution to mowers.
