Logan City Proclamation:
Dim the Lights for Birds at Night Week
WHEREAS, Two thirds of songbirds migrate at night, and light pollution can cause these birds to get confused as they fly, resulting in substantially greater mortality; and
WHEREAS World Migratory Bird Day is celebrated on Saturday, May 14th, to raise awareness of how migratory birds add so much to our enjoyment of lift and that we need to protect them,
Now therefore, I, Holly Daines, Mayor of Logan, do hereby proclaim the Week of May 8-14, 2022 as Dim the Lights for Birds at Night Week.
Signed by Logan Mayor Holly Daines, on this date of May 3rd, 2022.
