The center works to achieve this goal through partnerships with key stakeholders in the Northwest region (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington) and it works collaboratively with other regional centers to formulate national programs and policies in agricultural health and safety. Since the Center’s inception, it has worked to engage the three major agricultural sectors in the Northwest: farming, forestry, and fishing.
