No mow may

The Village of Cross Plains is participating in a one-year No Mow May pilot program. Cross Plains has suspended the enforcement of lawn care rules for the month, allowing property owners to delay mowing in the spring as a way to promote pollinator-friendly habitat early in the growing season.

No Mow May helps to highlight the importance of pollinators for the environment and food crops in the presence of a global insect decline. Early season flowers provide nectar for emerging pollinators (bees, butterflies) when resources are scarce.

No Mow May lawns in a study of Appleton, WI's participation in the program, showed a five-fold higher bee abundance and three-fold higher bee species richness compared with regularly mowed areas.

Participation in this program is voluntary. You can pick up a No Mow May yard sign at the Village Office (2417 Brewery Rd) during business hours, for a donation.
