About Salmon-Safe

Salmon-Safe was founded by the Oregon-based Pacific Rivers Council in 1997 and has since spun off as a separate nonprofit organization that works with farmers throughout the Pacific Northwest to promote conservation practices and habitat restoration. We are one of several groups contracted with Salmon-Safe to award the eco-label to interested and qualified properties. Today, around 80,000 acres have been certified Salmon-Safe in critical West Coast agricultural watersheds ranging from northern California to the Fraser River of British Columbia.

The decline of salmon runs in the face of water quality degradation and habitat loss is one of the most pressing environmental concerns facing Washington and the greater Pacific Northwest today. Traditional land management practices are not always mindful of environmental impact and can contribute to the problem. Erosion and runoff silts up rivers and jeopardizes spawning gravels. Fertilizers and pesticides wash into wetlands and waterways, damaging young fish and riparian ecosystems. Excessive irrigation depletes in-stream water supplies. And lack of vegetation along stream banks causes both an increase in stream temperature and an absence of habitat structures for salmon and other fish and wildlife.

One part of the solution to these problems is responsible land management — and we are leading the way certifying as Salmon-Safe tens of thousands of agricultural acres across more than a hundred properties in Washington state. We introduced the “Salmon-Safe” eco-label to Washington State in 2004 in order to help farmers and other owners of working lands better protect water quality and help conserve habitat for dwindling runs of wild salmon. To date, the group has added more than 100 different Washington farms and vineyards to the program — in the process ensuring the restoration and maintenance of ecosystem health across tens of thousands of agricultural acres within important native salmon fisheries across the state.

To qualify for certification prospective farms and other entities must meet rigorous and site specific criteria regarding their water use, erosion control, chemical practices and animal management, based on an independent third-party assessment. Once part of the program, participating properties must undergo periodic reviews to make sure they are maintaining their commitments. Whether the site is an organic farm in Carnation, an orchard in the Skagit Valley, a Walla Walla vineyard or a cidery in Port Townsend, certification requires ongoing management practices that protect water quality and restore habitat. The end result is not only the protection of salmon habitat and ecosystems, but also the creation of a new market for fresh and packaged goods bearing the Salmon-Safe eco-label.

Salmon-Safe Farm Certification Program

An Environmental Label for the Northwest 

Stewardship Partners is collaborating with the Oregon-based Salmon-Safe certification program to recognize farm operations who adopt conservation practices that help restore native salmon habitat in Pacific Northwest rivers and streams. Salmon-Safe farms protect water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and overall watershed health. The independent eco-label is gaining national recognition and appears on a variety of products including wine, dairy, vegetables and fruit. This not only sends an important signal in the marketplace but also directly benefits the forward-thinking landowners who have achieved certification, and provides an incentive for others to transition to more responsible agricultural practices.

Furthermore, giving consumers the opportunity to protect native wild salmon habitat through their lifestyle choices empowers them as decision-makers. Whether it’s the wine they drink, the produce they buy or the golf courses they play, the Salmon-Safe label helps consumers support their local businesses that are committed to keeping the Northwest a beautiful place and healthy home for both people and wild salmon.

Each of these vineyards is doing its part to protect water quality and biodiversity in Willamette tributaries like the Yamhill and Tualatin, as well as the Walla Walla River in the interior Columbia Basin, Rogue Basin and other important Northwest salmon watersheds.

Salmon-Safe helps vineyards protect and restore salmon habitat by planting trees on streams, growing cover crops to control run-off, and apply natural methods to control weeds and pests. Vineyards that meet our rigorous standards earn certification, giving them the honor of using the Salmon-Safe label.

Salmon-Safe: Urban

Salmon-Safe Urban

With the goal to protect Pacific Northwest salmon watersheds, we partner with Oregon-based Salmon-Safe to certify not only farms and vineyards in agricultural areas, but also urban and other high-density developments in cities and on corporate and university campuses.

Urban developments qualifying for certification under Salmon-Safe’s urban program must meet strict criteria based on an independent third-party assessment regarding stormwater management, pest control, water consumption reduction and long-term strategies that provide benefits to local watersheds and ecosystems and to the native salmon habitat they support.

Of course, getting certified by Salmon-Safe’s urban program imparts tangible benefits to developers beyond helping the environment. Salmon-Safe certification can open doors to a growing number of state and local government incentives for green building, and can help increase interest and investment in qualifying projects. Salmon-Safe developed its urban standards to endorse land management, design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing the typical negative environmental impacts of development. In addition to being a stand-alone program, Salmon-Safe certification contributes to the point system of other high-performance building certifications such as LEED and Built Green.

To date, we’ve awarded the Salmon-Safe eco-label to several types of urban properties around Seattle and other parts of Washington state, including stand-alone buildings in densely populated areas, residential communities, corporate and academic campuses, neighborhood districts, parks and other open spaces, and golf courses.

Salmon-Safe: Golf Courses

golf 635

Salmon-Safe Golf seeks to inspire a new level of environmental innovation in golf course design and management with respect to the protection of urban water quality and the preservation of imperiled West Coast salmon. The project is a collaboration between Salmon-Safe, Stewardship Partners and the Northwest golf industry.

Salmon-Safe’s new golf standards are adapted from our peer reviewed residential development and park & natural area standards, and are currently being reviewed by technical experts and piloted at multiple sites in Oregon and Washington. The standards focus on operation and ongoing management golf courses, but also provide guidance for new facility upgrades within existing golf courses.

Like our other urban certification programs, the Salmon-Safe process for golf courses begins with a day-long site assessment of management issues including irrigation efficiency, stormwater management, pesticide reduction and stream and wetlands area management. The assessment is conducted by a 3-member team that typically includes an expert in golf course design and operation as well as a university IPM professional and a salmon biologist or other restoration ecologist. The team also reviews management policies and documents related to environmental management of facilities and grounds.  Squaxin Island Tribe’s new Salish Cliffs Golf Club has become the first “Salmon-Safe” certified golf course after successfully passing an exhaustive assessment verifying the Tribe’s commitment to protecting native habitat, managing water runoff, reducing pesticides, and advancing environmental practices throughout the region.

Two more courses, Druids Glen and Willows Run recently were awarded Salmon-Safe certification for their efforts in operating, maintaining, and constructing golf course facilities in a way that enhances fish and wildlife habitat and protects watershed health. Willows Run’s recycled water coming from King County’s Brightwater Treatment plant contains safe bio-fertilizer that is rich in nutrients and helps minimize the need for any chemical fertilizers at the course.  This was an important factor in achieving certification and helps preserve instream flow critical for salmon habitat. With over 380 acres of land, Druid’s Glen provides important open space for the City of Covington.  The salmon bearing stream that runs through the course is vital to native Coho  populations.


“Salmon-Safe certification represents precisely the kind of rigorous and science-based yet voluntary approach that will be essential to the recovery of imperiled Puget Sound salmon.”
