Walk for the Wild
October 10 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
Join us for the virtual or in-person Walk for the Wild 5K in celebration of National Wildlife Refuge Week. Register today at https://tinyurl.com/Walk4Wild. To be guaranteed a t-shirt, we must have your registration by September 26!
This is an all-inclusive event! We invite all of our community members to celebrate the WILD and spend quality time in nature. The entire event is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Dogs on leashes are also welcome.
The walk will take place throughout the day. Packet pick-up is from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm and the route to walk is down the refuge’s scenic Swamp Island Drive. Packets include 5K bib, t-shirt (if applicable), and other Okefenokee goodies. This is a non-competitive, educational event in support of WILD places like Okefenokee NWR.
Can’t make it on Sunday, Oct 10? There is a virtual option and we will mail out your race packet and you can go at your own pace in your own neighborhood or park and still support these WILD places!
All proceeds go to the Friends of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge to support refuge programs.
