Fish & Wildlife Habitats

We work to protect fish and habitat in areas where we operate hydroelectric plants.

Rivers and fish

We work to protect fish and habitat in areas where we operate hydroelectric plants. Some work we do directly, some we fund through non-profits or other organizations.

  • Fish counts and fish runs

  • Visit our Rivers & Water Quality page to read about some of the most interesting projects on the Deschutes, Clackamas, and Willamete rivers, the fish and wildlife they support, and about our plants and history in each distinct region.

Birds love to nest on power poles and other electrical equipment. But our avian biologists are on the job, working to keep them safe while helping keep your power on.
