What is No Mow May: why and how to participate?

I just figured out No Mow May and was wondering what it is? No Mow May is a campaign to encourage people not to mow their lawns in May – and mow less in the summer. The reason? To help wildflowers and pollinating insects when both are in severe decline.

Participating may mean not mowing all of the lawn that is part of your backyard landscaping ideas, or just leaving a small area unmown, but either way the goal is to get flowers blooming and provide nectar for pollinators.
