Join the City of Hopkins for our first year celebrating No Mow May! From May 1-31, the City will not enforce ordinances related to maintenance of vegetation to help maintain habitat and forage for early season pollinators such as native bees, honeybees, ants, flies, beetles, birds, butterflies and more.
No Mow May encourages residents to protect pollinator food and habitat during this critical transition from winter to spring by avoiding mowing their yards during the month of May. This is particularly important in urban areas like Hopkins, where floral resources are often limited.
In addition to benefiting pollinators, reducing mowing frequency will save water, help your lawn become more resilient to drought, and reduce emissions from gas-powered lawn equipment that often lacks the emission reduction equipment found on larger engines.
