Region 15Nestled in the southeast corner of the heavily populated Portland metro area lies Region 15, better known as Clackamas County. The region has easy access to abundant recreational opportunities such as skiing, river rafting, fishing, and camping. About seven-eighths of the county's land area is considered rural, with some of Oregon's richest farmland located around Canby, Sandy, Boring, Wilsonville, and Molalla, making agriculture one of the county's principal industries.
