The Lancaster Conservation Commission (LCC) is pleased to announce No Mow May. During the month of May, residents are encouraged not to mow, water, or fertilize their lawn.
Although we are eager to clean up our yards in the spring, hibernating pollinators often need a bit more time under the leaves before they can safely emerge. Leaves left on the ground provide important insulation for bees hibernating underground and for moths and butterflies that overwinter in the leaves.
The town will support this conservation effort and will participate in No Mow May at Soldiers Park at the junction of Routes 2 and 3.
The LCC will provide a free reusable No Mow May sign for Lancaster residents to display in their yards throughout the month of May. Sign pick up is Saturday, April 22 starting at 9 am at Centennial Park while supplies last, limit one per yard.
