Take the Lights Out Texas pledge for birds!

Take the Lights Out Texas pledge for birds!
Spring bird migration is underway and organizations across Texas will turn their lights out at night as we welcome hundreds of millions of birds migrating through our state on their way north from their southern wintering grounds.

Discovery Green hopes you will join us in supporting this important effort to protect migrating birds. We encourage you to turn off non-essential lights at night from 11 pm - 6 am during the spring migration period from March 1 - June 15, and where conflicts apply, prioritize lights out during the critical peak spring migration period from April 22 – May 12. Every light turned out at night helps save migrating birds by reducing collisions with brightly lit buildings. As an added bonus, turning off non-essential lights also saves energy and money for cities, local businesses, and homeowners!

It's really just that easy to save a bird’s life! Sign up below to take the pledge and Discovery Green will send you tips and reminders.

The Lights Out Texas effort is led by a coalition of partners that includes conservation non-profits, universities, governmental organizations, and Texans dedicated to the conservation of birds. This spring Texan by Nature is co-facilitating Lights Out Texas, with friends and partners at Audubon Texas. Given the mission, vision, and growth of Audubon Texas, Lights Out Texas is expected to reach new levels of success with their leadership. You can also certify your home or building for Texas-wide recognition at Texas Conservation Alliance.
