Events and activities
Junior Ranger Program
June — August 2019
All day long
One of the best ways to preserve our natural spaces is to engage the next generation. That's why we offer Junior Ranger programs at all our PGE campgrounds over the summer. Every child 5 years and older who visits is invited to join. Just pick up a Park Explorer activity book from the PGE park host. Your child will learn about nature and wildlife conservation and why it's important to us all. Once they complete the book, they'll receive a certificate and an official Junior Ranger badge. It's an excellent way to build excitement about nature and conservation.

Protecting our environment
We know producing electricity does have an impact on our environment and we’re committed to helping minimize that impact and protecting this wonderful place we call home.
Our environmental stewardship programs focus on two key impact areas:
Air quality and emissions:
As we work to combat the effects of climate change, we are focused on powering Oregon with clean, reliable energy. This includes work to reduce our GHG emissions and increase energy efficiency (for ourselves and our customers).
Water quality and wildlife habitat:
We work to help protect our rivers, fish and wildlife. Through monitoring water quality, protecting fish passage and restoring habitat.
We also have a team dedicated to caring for the people and places of Oregon. We’ve even heard them say they have the best jobs ever. Read their stories to learn more about what they do every day to help our customers and contribute to a clean energy future.
