‘Lights Out’ Collin County

by | May 4, 2023 | Life & Style

Turn off lights to protect migrating birds

Nearly 2 billion birds migrating through the United States in spring and fall pass through Texas. And many of them that fly by night can become confused by light pollution, slamming into buildings or other obstacles.

To help prevent that, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and conservation groups including Texan by Nature, Audubon Texas and Texas Conservation Alliance ask Texans to help their feathered friends on their journey by participating in the twice-a-year “Lights Out” program. The Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas was a research participant in the program.
