Must be an Oakdale resident to participate. Enroll inside the Discovery Center with photo ID to verify residency before your first walk.


Walk your way to less stress, lower weight, better health, and great rewards! It’s easy! 

Here's How:
Visit the Discovery Center during open hours and fill out information to get signed up. Proof of residency will be required at this time (i.e. Driver’s License, Passport, etc.). All ages can participate; children living with parents in Oakdale are eligible for rewards. During registration, you will choose the location for your end of the season gift card reward.

After enrolling, submit completed mileage forms (available inside the Discovery Center or outside in the drop box) on the same dates as your walks in the Oakdale Nature Preserve. Mileage walked outside of the Oakdale Nature Preserve and forms submitted late will not qualify. Recreation staff will track all qualifying walked mileage up to 200 miles.
