In partnership with the Audubon Society, IDA Colorado is working on a “Lights Out Colorado” program to help migratory birds. This would greatly expand the current “Lights Out Denver” program. The details of the new program are still being discussed. The tentative plan is to publicly announce the program in early 2021.

Richard OBrien (IDA Colorado), Dr. Kyle Horton (Colorado State University), and Zach Hutchinson (Audubon Rockies) are leading conversations with Audubon chapters in the Front Range Urban Corridor area. If you would like to know more or help, please contact Richard (

A discussion session was held November 11 with the Arkansas Valley Audubon Society (Pueblo).
