Tri-Moraine Audubon monthly program: Bird Conservation at the flip of a switch?
February 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Artificial lighting, which is becoming increasingly abundant on the landscape, has become a major concern for migratory bird populations. Birds attracted to bright lighting often fatally collide with buildings, and it is estimated that between 365 and 988 million birds are killed by collisions each year in the United States. The Ohio Bird Conservation (OBCI) and its large network of conservation organizations has developed a Lights Out program to work within communities to address light and glass issues in urban areas. Regional Lights Out programs are now running in most of Ohio’s major cities and are supported by a wide variety of conservation organizations, businesses, and individuals.
