Mow Less

Support pollinators by reducing the number of times you mow this spring.

Why Mowing Matters

Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, and various other insects, are essential for our environmental ecosystem. It is important to support their habitats and food sources through flowering plants. Clover, violets, dandelions, and other small flowers often found on lawns provide some of the first food sources for bees. Mowing lawns less, especially in early spring, can help provide consistent food that pollinators need to survive.

Help us support pollinators throughout the city of Red Wing at the beginning of the growing season and through the year by considering how you care for your lawn.
