Lights Out Wake Commercial Building Owner/Tenant Pledge

Lights Out Wake is a voluntary program sponsored by Wake Audubon Society to turn off and minimize external and internal building lights at night, during spring and fall migration, in an effort to reduce bird collisions.

Commercial building owners/tenants are asked to pledge the following between March 15 – May 31 and August 15 – November 15, between the hours of 11 PM and 6 AM.

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

Please note: Lights Out Wake, an initiative of Wake Audubon Society, asks for this information in order to map the location of buildings.  We will not publish participant addresses nor will we share an address with anyone outside of our organization.
