Participate in No Mow March to Support Pollinators!

This month, Decatur residents are invited to refrain from mowing their lawns in order to help feed pollinators! According to Decatur’s Bee City USA committee, by not mowing, we allow various plants (including dandelions, violets, and more) to grow and provide sustenance for early spring pollinators like honey bees, mason bees, mining bees, and bumble bees.

This movement, initially called “No Mow May,” began in the UK and was first picked up in the US by residents of Appleton, Wisconsin. In Georgia, however, we participate in March because our major pollinators appear in late February and early March.

If you’d like to participate, you can pick up a free yard sign at the City of Decatur Public Works building or email for a pdf of the sign to print your own.
