Go Lights Out 2021
Mark your calendars for the 6th annual Lights Out Portland happening Saturday, September 25, an event to kick off the peak of fall migration season when millions of birds will be passing over Oregon skies! Residential households and commercial buildings will dim their lighting in order to raise awareness about the impact of light pollution on migrating birds, about wasted energy in the form of light thrown up into the sky, and about preserving our ability to see stars from the city.
Building owners, businesses, and residents are encouraged to keep joining us from dusk to dawn each night through October 19–the period during which peak numbers of birds will be moving through our airspace. A big thank you to participating iconic buildings including OMSI, City Hall, KOIN Tower, Fox Tower, Park Avenue West, 1900 Building, East Portland Community Center, Mt Scott Community Center, SW Comm Center, Matt Dishman CC, Charles Jordan CC, 911 Federal Building, Lloyd 700, Lloyd Center Tower, Metro Regional Center, Portland Building, OCC, Montgomery Park, OHSU South Waterfront, 1201 Lloyd, Multnomah County Central Courthouse, Bank of America Financial Center, First and Main, and Morrison Bridge decorative lighting.
