Harriet

Harriet was admitted to the hospital in the summer of 2018 after being hit by a car, and thus sustained some significant damage to her left wing, and costed her one of her toes. The fracture in her wing was originally pinned for healing, but it became apparent that the damage was extensive enough that it limited her mobility.

Yay fresh paint!
New Bird Room!

For the past few months, the Education Department has been collecting donations primarily from Facebook posts. Our supporters are incredibly generous, and Erin and I were really touched by your contributions. We wanted to let you know that your contributions went to a very big need!

Patient Story: Long-earred Owl – Head Trauma

We do our best to share stories of second chances, happy endings, and great outcomes. Unfortunately in wildlife rehabilitation, those cases don’t tell the whole story.

Perches and Foot Health in Raptors

The importance of proper bird perching is essential to the quality of life, and health of wild birds living in captivity. Seldom laying down, birds are usually up and on their feet most of their lives.

Spring, being a transitional season, shows Cedar Run through a unique lens. Come visit soon!
Spring Observations

Part time educator, Rachel, decided to put together a visual post of pictures she compiled over the last week at Cedar Run during springtime.

Take a hike at Cedar Run on the White Trail on a warm spring evening and you may hear the sounds of crickets chirping but most likely, you are hearing the sounds of the spring peepers, a chorus frog native to the eastern part of North America.
