April 27th - Leschi-Quiemuth Honor Walk/Run (Pre-Registration Required)
It is Nisqually Tribe’s pleasure to once again host this event. In 2013, the Nisqually Tribe and Joint Base Lewis McChord hosted the event, and it was a great success.
Our Walk/Run/Tour will be an event to remember. We have secured the Joint Base Lewis McChord Military Reservation again for 2019; this was formerly the Nisqually lands pre-1917 condemnation.
The advanced walkers and runners will be using the route known as “Range 91” to Clear Creek Fish Hatchery, via the condemned allotments and Church sites. The walkers who want to take the “Short Walk” will take the bus tour to Ross Cemetery, and complete the 2.5 mile walk to Clear Creek Fish Hatchery. There is a MAP attached with details.
We are pre-registering all applicants because this is a sensitive area, and we must have advance notice of everyone's arrival. Tribes wishing to send a van or bus on the tour must register the vehicle by Friday, April 12th, 2019. All participants will be shuttled in between 9a.m. and 10a.m., and the walk/run/tour will start promptly at 10a.m. We cannot make any exceptions. If you are not on-site and pre-registered, you will not be allowed to start late.
Please Note: JBLM will need all participants to fill out their registration forms before boarding the buses.
