UW is currently undergoing Salmon-Safe recertification after first being certified in 2011. Salmon-Safe is a regional eco-label that ensures a site (farm, vineyard, university campus, landscape, etc.) has minimized its impact on local watersheds by increasing the quality and reducing the quantity of stormwater discharged. Through a grant from the CSF, the Sustainable Stormwater program has catalyzed student efforts to become integrally involved with the recertification effort and is leading the process.

Dani Gilmour describes herself as a former junk food fiend, something one wouldn’t expect from the coordinator of Husky Real Food Challenge (HRFC).
Since she was a child growing up in Cheney, Wash., she has known she wanted to address climate change, but food production had never occurred to her as something that has a significant impact on the environment. Gilmour attributes her newfound interest in food to the food-related classes at the UW and opportunities to volunteer at the UW Farm during her first year on campus.
