KEPOs No Mow May / Nonen Onerahtohkowa Nikahawi - Tohsa Sewathentiak Challenge Returns


The Kahnaw�:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) is inviting Kahnawa�kehr�:non to join the challenge for the month of May. The No Mow May / N�:nen Onerahtohk�:wa Nikah�:wi, T�hsa� Sewath�ntia�k! challenge asks community members to refrain from cutting their lawns for the entire month with the goal of supporting biodiversity and pollinators. The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) is participating by reducing maintenance outside of priority areas cleared for public safety.

By waiting until June to cut our lawns, we:

  • Allow pollinator insects, like endangered bees, and their food supplies the opportunity to undergo a critical part of their life cycle
  • Encourage native plant species to grow and thrive
  • Conserve resources, time, and money by not using lawn care equipment

Participants will be asked to send weekly progress photos to the KEPO social media pages and/or email them to All participants who complete the No Mow May challenge will be entered into a draw to win one of three gardening-themed prizes worth $150!

To register, please fill out the form at, or scan the QR code below with your smartphone to register. The first 25 participants to register will receive a No Mow May lawn sign.
