Round 1: “Which species weighs more?”
Featuring Apollo our Resident Wildlife Ambassador, Turkey Vulture vs. Oren out Resident Wildlife Ambassador, Northern Pine Snake.

Give wildlife babies a second chance! You can help support the starting costs of baby formula this season at Cedar Run! Last year, we took in over 4,000 baby animals, many of which require special formulas in their diet. Opossum babies will start coming in, in a few short weeks. Many of them will need to be tube-fed around the clock and receive medical treatment.
Please consider helping us get ready by donating to help cover the starting cost of baby formula this season. Every contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $1, $5 or $500. Consider chipping in to support our wildlife baby season formula fundraiser. Please remember, no amount is too small, every little bit will help us to feed these wild babies!
