Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge is a 171-acre non-profit wildlife refuge, wildlife rehabilitation hospital & nature center on the edge of the New Jersey Pinelands.

Cedar Run includes the Woodford Nature Center, a Wildlife Housing Area with nearly 60 native residents, and a Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital that sees more than 5,000 wild animals each year. The overall mission of Cedar Run is to serve as a community resource on the importance of protecting and enhancing healthy ecosystems for all.
Still Saving Wildlife and Educating the Public!

Though we may find ourselves inside more often these days, work at Cedar Run continues. Our Nature Center is closed, but our Wildlife Hospital remains open, our resident animals still need to be fed, and Cedar Run’s staff still seeks to educate the public!

Deep in the Woods

Talk about off the beaten path: If you’re headed to Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge by way of Jackson Road in Medford, you literally run out of asphalt before you happen upon the signs pointing to the tucked-away place that many people consider the true gateway to the Pine Barrens.
