No Mow May 2022

Posted on Apr 25, 2022 by

To promote and educate the community about the critical period of pollinator emergence, the month of May 2022 has been designated as No Mow May in the City of Kaukauna. The goal of No Mow May is to provide early season forage for bees and emerging native pollinators by reducing our mowing intensity during a month where foraging resources are limited. For the duration of the month of May, the City of Kaukauna shall suspend the enforcement of Chapter 10.03(6) Noxious Weeds until June 2022. Citations will not be issued for excessive weed growth during the month of May.

No Mow May is completely optional and voluntary for City of Kaukauna residents. If you are interested in taking part in No Mow May, please follow this link to register your property. Yard signs are available for pick-up in the Clerk’s office at the Municipal Services Building ($5 suggested donation).

Ways you can participate:

  • Forgo mowing during the month of May.
  • Forgo mowing the first 2-3 weeks during the month of May.
  • Forgo mowing your terrace, front yard, backyard, or any other area of your property.
  • Forgo using insecticides/pesticides.

With questions, please call the Mayor’s office at 920.766.6310.
