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 6,000 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.

Our Nature Center and hiking trails are open to the public 7 days a week!


Summer Camp Fun for Every Child! For youth from economically-challenged homes, the opportunity to enjoy a carefree summer spent learning and playing outdoors might be an impossible dream. Our goal is to raise $2,250 with this initiative in 2022. This is enough to send 9 under-served campers to Cedar Run’s camp!

Summer Camp 2022 Registration Has Begun!

Walk in the woods, dig in the dirt, and wade in the water during our week-long nature camps. Daily activities include hands-on experiences and experiments, visits with native wildlife, and creative play. Sessions available for ages 3 through 8th grade. Camps run June 27-August 19, 2022.

Early Bird rates until 4/15/2022. Member discounts!
