Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge is a 171 acre 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 more than 60 native residents, and a wildlife rehabilitation hospital. The overall mission of Cedar Run is to serve as a community resource on the importance of protecting and enhancing healthy ecosystems for all.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
