Oakdale Nature Preserve

Register beginning April 3 inside the Discovery Center.

Proof of Oakdale residency (using a driver’s license, etc.) will be required when registering. 


Walk your way to less stress, lower weight, better health, and great rewards! It’s easy! Oakdale residents walk the 200-acre preserve as much as possible, with the ultimate goal of reaching a total of 150 miles to earn a $25 gift card.

Here's How

After enrolling, submit completed mileage forms inside the Discovery Center (or in the outdoor 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 150 miles.
