Learn about birds from all over the globe and how they adapt to their habitats as they soar overhead at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. At 12 p.m., meet one of our boa constrictors, hear our staff debunk myths about snakes and learn how important they are to the environment.

PGE has been a supporter of Wildlife Live summer shows since 1986 because we care about birds. Our avian plan helps protect birds near electrical equipment. PGE bucket trucks have been used to help save eagle nests. And our wildlife biologists monitor raptor populations throughout our operations area, gathering data annually on bald eagle and golden eagle nests. It's all part of our commitment to Oregon's environment.
