THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Working at Farm Workers Clinic means living in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest. You will have the opportunity to enjoy spectacular wilderness areas, scenic ocean beaches, and crystal-clear lakes and rivers. Because of the Cascade mountain range, the Northwest has two distinct climates: The west side is lush and green. Eastern Washington and Oregon, shielded from the rain-filled clouds by the high mountains, tend to be sunny and arid.
The two climates enable farms and orchards to produce a bounty of different fruits, berries, and vegetables. And with 22 appellations, the Yakima Valley is also celebrated for its premier wines.
No matter where you live in the Pacific Northwest, you are within an easy drive to a thriving metropolitan area, offering fine shopping, theatres, museums, and galleries. The area also boasts progressive public and private schools and world-class universities.
