Full Spring Migration Period: March 1 - June 15, 2022 / Critical Peak Migration Period: April 22 - May 12, 2022

The Lights Out Texas effort is co-facilitated statewide by Texan by Nature and Audubon Texas. The initiative is supported by a coalition that includes conservation non-profits, universities, governmental organizations, and Texans dedicated to the conservation of birds. 

We are excited to announce that after the 2022 Spring migration season, Lights Out Texas will fully transition to Audubon Texas for statewide facilitation for its next phase of growth. We expect the leadership transition to be seamless, and the Lights Out Texas initiative to grow and thrive under Audubon Texas’s vision.
