Rochester, MN launched the "No Mow May" campaign to provide habitat for pollinators

Rochester, MN "No Mow May" parks and recreation campaign

In Progress

The City of Rochester's Department of Parks and Recreation launched the "No Mow May" campaign to encourage homeowners not to mow their lawns for a month. The campaign was created to provide habitat and refuge for pollinators by allowing grass to grow. During the one-month campaign, the city has relaxed an existing ordinance which normally requires residents to keep vegetation under 12 inches. Residents will still be expected to pull weeds in their yard during the campaign.
