Meet at the Nisqually Billy Frank Jr. gym
Registration required! See details:
This walk/run/tour will be an event to remember! Hosted by the Leschi Heritage Foundation, Nisqually Tribal Council and Joint Base Lewis McChord community, there will be three options for a 7-mile walk, a 12-mile bus ride, or a 9-mile bus ride plus 3-mile walk. This will take place on the Joint Base Lewis McChord Military Reservation; this was formerly the Nisqually lands pre-1917 condemnation.
All applicants must be pre-registered because this is a sensitive area, and the Nisqually Tribe is asking for advance notice of everyone's arrival. No personal vehicles will be allowed on Joint Base Lewis McChord, so all participants must leave their vehicle at Nisqually Billy Frank Jr. gym site. Registration will be available at 8:30am on April 27th at the Billy Frank Jr. Gym.
