A field of dandelions.

Dandelions pop up everywhere in the spring. Bees, butterflies, and other bugs love these cheery yellow flowers. They’re one of the first foods of the season for pollinators. And the pollinator that we see on them most at this time of year is the honeybee.

To protect this pollinator food source, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) started a new campaign. It’s called No Mow May. The movement started in the U.K. Now it’s spread to Canada. Its goal is to change attitudes to lawncare.
