Audubon and other conservation groups have worked with building owners, city officials and researchers in many cities around the United States to solve a challenge to migrating birds.Building owners have voluntarily agreed to extinguish their exterior decorative lighting and to dim atrium and lobby lights at key times during the migration season.

In our Lights Out web pages, you will find a Tool Kit for starting a program, with great ideas from programs across the country that you can take and modify for your city.


Birds migrating at night can be attracted to bright lighting in our cities. “Lights Out” helps keep birds on track and out of harm’s way.
