Lights Out Philly Pledge for Commercial Buildings & Academic Institutions
In 2021, Bird Safe Philly launched the Lights Out Philly Program to make Philadelphia and surrounding areas safer for migratory and resident birds, and in since then, over 100 commercial, residential and municipal participants pledged to turn off their lights at night to help birds. Thank you to all those that took part!

For 2023, we are once again asking commercial building owners/tenants to minimize unnecessary lights and make some lighting changes during the peak spring and fall migration periods of April 1 - May 31 and August 15 - November 15, from midnight to 6am. Specific actions include the following:

 Turn off exterior decorative lighting
 Extinguish spot and flood-lights
 Substitute strobe lighting where possible
 Reduce lobby and atrium lighting where possible
 Turn off interior lighting, especially on upper floors
 Substitute task and area lighting for workers staying late
 Down-shield exterior lighting or limit to ground level
