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.
The Nature Center will be open to the public at reduced hours – Mon thru Fri 10am-4pm and Sat-Sun 10am-3pm. We appreciate your understanding as we adapt staff schedules to ensure rigorous cleaning and maintain the health and safety of our guests, summer campers, staff, and volunteers.
After weeks of waiting and planning and prepping and carefully considering all our options and your needs, we can finally announce that Cedar Run Go WILD Summer Camp is a go!
Journeys and Conversations will be an online offering (until such a time as we are able to have in person meetings again) where we will meet once a week on Wednesday evenings at 7PM to discuss a topic relating to the environment and our relationship to nature.
A 4/16/2020 article in the Central Record stated “An institution in South Jersey is in danger of shutting its doors for good due to the coronavirus pandemic.” The article should have continued…”Unless the Medford Township Council Acts Now to Support Cedar Run!”
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!
