1000 Islands Supports a Slow-Mow Summer to Help Bees and other Pollinators

Pollinators, including bees, butterflies, birds, bats, and other small mammals, are responsible for 1 of every 3 bites of food you eat. Without these pollinators, our food systems as well as our natural ecosystems are in trouble. Although more research needs to be done to fully understand the decline of pollinator populations including the causes and effects, it is important to take action now to better support our pollinators.

The City of Kaukauna, along with 1000 Islands Environmental Center, is promoting pollinator friendly actions that anyone can take part in to create pollinator friendly yards. See our Slow-Mow Summer page for steps that you can take throughout the growing season to create better habitat for bees and other pollinators.
