The Audubon Society of Portland has organized Lights Out Portland for September 30, 2016 to save energy, save lives and see stars. Studies show in the United States, up to 1 billion birds die every year from colliding into a building window. Most birds migrate at night and rely on natural light from the sky, but city lights can interfere and deceive their path. By reducing our lighting, we can minimize risk and provide a safe route.
Portland will be joining 21 other cities to turn off unnecessary light to our buildings. To do our part, TMT has asked tenants of Park Avenue West and Fox Tower to pull down their blinds at dusk on the 30th. Our building engineers will be turning off our roof & non-emergency lights as well.
Please join us on September 30th and shut it down for Lights Out Portland!
