Louisiana Wildlife Federation’s board of directors adopted a resolution to promote a “lights out” initiative during bird migration periods in the Spring and Fall, principally in the months of April, May, September, and October during the hours of 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. We’re beginning to meet with public officials and commercial property managers to discuss the importance of reducing outdoor lighting during certain hours of peak migration months. Check out the LWF resolution for details on why this is important.
Thanks to Board Member Charles Williams for kicking this off and learning more about how Texas benefits from a Lights Out program. More details to come on how you can help. See real time information about bird migration and maps at birdcast.info right now.
