Lights Out
PTAS is a passionate advocate for Lights Out Texas. Intriguingly, about one-third of the migrating birds in the U.S. fly through Texas. These birds predominantly travel during nighttime, making them prone to disorientation due to the bright lights of commercial and residential infrastructures. This disarray can lead to deadly collisions and puts birds at risk from other ground-level threats. To protect these birds, it's essential to mitigate light pollution by switching off non-essential lights between 11pm-6am during spring and fall migrations. For more information and to sign up for bird migration alerts, visit Audubon Texas Lights Out. We encourage our members and the public to engage with the Texas Conservation Alliance's Lights Out program, which includes conducting surveys in downtown Fort Worth and Dallas.

Organized in 1980, Prairie and Timbers Audubon Society serves Collin County and surrounding counties. We invite you and your family to join us for a wide range of nature-oriented activities. Monthly meetings are scheduled the 4th Tuesday, 6:45 pm, September through November and January through May. They are free and open to the public. Programs are related to wildlife, ecology, conservation and of course, BIRDS!

PTAS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and chapter of the National Audubon Society.3
