No Mow May
For the month of May, The Kensington Conservancy is asking you to refrain from mowing your lawn to help our bees, butterflies, and other wildlife! No Mow May is intended to give our insects and their food supplies a chance to grow and establish before their habitats get mowed down.
If you would like to pledge your commitment to No Mow May, please fill out the form below.
Salamander Board Check

Invasive Species of the St. Joseph Channel Area
Invasive species are plants, animals, insects, and pathogens that are introduced to an area and cause harm to the environment, economy, or society. They are considered one of Canada’s greatest threats to the survival of our wild animal and plant life. Learn about which invasive species are known to inhabit the St. Joseph Channel area, why they are harmful and what to do with them if they are found. We will discuss how to identify common invasive species, how to report them using digital tools such as EDDMaps or iNaturalist, and how you can help prevent their spread.
