A No Mow May sign marks an unmowned area of grass

Bee colonies in NJ and beyond are declining due to habitat loss, pesticides, climate change, and parasites. This May, help our Closter’s pollinators by NOT mowing your lawn! Decreasing mowing frequency allows flowering plants to bloom, providing nectar and pollen to bees and other pollinators. The growing “No Mow May” movement is a great starting point for learning about sustainable landscaping.
