May 10, 2023: Ann Arbor evolves program to protect pollinators
In an effort to protect pollinators, many communities are pushing a "No Mow May" movement. It essentially asks you to allow grass to grow six to 12 inches before cutting it for the first time. The City of Ann Arbor is evolving its effort and is advocating a "Pollinator-Aware Yard Care" education and practice program. Community Sustainability Coordinator Sean Reynolds joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss the distinctions and offer advice on making sure our pollinators flourish. Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on the air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment page. For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias Lapp.
