LIGHTS OUT CHAPEL HILL!  We are asking community members to turn off lights during bird migration seasons to help save birds, save energy, and save money. Simply turn off your lights after midnight during peak fall migration, Sept 1-Nov. 30. The majority of birds migrate at night, using the night sky to navigate.  Artificial lights confuse their navigation and cause unnecessary collisions with buildings and loss of progress toward their destinations. See the details here.
