Window Collision Fatality in Cleveland - Photo Michelle Leighty Jones

Random Precision Brewing has reserved tables for the Lights Out Columbus group from 5:30 to 7:30 on Thursday, February 16. It will be an evening of fellowship for current Lights Out Columbus volunteers, or for anyone considering joining the team. 

Curious? Come on down and check it out.

Every spring and fall, millions of birds migrate through Ohio on their way between their breeding and overwintering grounds. Most species of songbirds migrate at night, and lights on tall buildings or aimed at the sky can disorient them and draw them into buildings. This causes many birds to strike windows or circle buildings until they fall from exhaustion. A recent study estimated that as many as 1 billion birds die each year in the United States from building collisions.

Lights Out Columbus, part of Ohio Lights Out, is working to prevent bird collisions.

Join us as we expand our community efforts to make urban and suburban landscapes safer for migratory wildlife.
