About the Location
Working at Farm Workers Clinic means living in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest. You will have the opportunity 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 is 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, Washington and Oregon are celebrated for their world-class wines, with Tri-Cities commonly referred to as the "Heart of Washington Wine Country".
Beyond the beautiful climate and vegetation, living in Yakima means you will be within an easy drive to thriving metropolitan areas, offering fine shopping, theatres, museums and galleries.
