The FLAP program in Toronto was the first to raise awareness of the problem lights pose for birds in an urban center, starting in 1993.

In 1999, Audubon and partners established the first Lights Out program in Chicago. Since then, groups in many other cities have organized programs to make a difference for birds. See the list below or explore the map of the Lights Out network
