Building a Better Federal Waywalking-trail-2

Save Weyerhaeuser Campus is a nonprofit, grassroots organization. Our mission is to promote the responsible use and conservation of the unique character of the historic Weyerhaeuser Campus, consistent with the original intent of the Weyerhaeuser Family. This includes:

  • Protecting North Lake’s west shoreline and watershed, wildlife habitat, the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden & the Pacific Bonsai Museum.
  • Preserving the forests, meadows and trails, & public access to them.
  • Maintaining the campus character through premium development that blends with the environment and brings high-quality jobs to the community.

We are unified in our intent to maintain a healthy, habitable and sustainable living community in Federal Way, free of the industrial warehouse development now under consideration by the City of Federal Way for the internationally acclaimed campus.

Weyerhaeuser Way, not Warehouse Way!

As such, we support the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Vision 2040 designation of Federal Way as a “Regional Growth Center” containing significant business, governmental and cultural activities including jobs, shopping, recreation and parks, and responsible residential development.

Since beginning this fight in August 2016, we have successfully stopped development of a fish processing factory and freezer warehouse on the campus.

We are now focused on defeating the five warehouses -- totaling nearly 1.5 million square feet -- proposed on the campus.

We are championing an alternate plan that would use the existing development footprint of the campus, providing the developer the desired return on investment while forever preserving the forests, meadows and trails for the enjoyment of people across the region.

Our Vision for the Future


We have conserved the Weyerhaeuser Campus for the use by future generations.

Consistent with Vision 2040, the Weyerhaeuser Campus has become a model of the balance between natural & commercial development.

The historic Weyerhaeuser Campus is an important part of why Federal Way is a place where people want to live, work, shop and enjoy themselves in a natural setting which the Weyerhaeuser Family envisioned for Federal Way.

Because we have a compelling message and an effective voice, we have the support of the entire Federal Way community, city officials, State and Federal agencies and leaders, major foundations, celebrities and many organizations which promote good environmental stewardship.

All development of the historic Weyerhaeuser Campus meets EIS, SEPA and regional planning requirements.
