Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge
Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge sits on 171 wooded acres on the edge of the New Jersey Pinelands. Cedar Run includes the Woodford Nature Center, an outdoor Wildlife Housing Area with nearly 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.
To that end, Cedar Run engages in: ecologically based land management; the operation of a Federally and New Jersey State licensed hospital facility that cares for more than 6,300 injured or orphaned native wildlife each year; the education of over 20,000 students annually through our various on-site and outreach programs; and serves as an active resource to the greater New Jersey community on all wildlife and habitat-related questions and issues.
We welcome visitors throughout the year to our Wildlife Housing Area, where you can see Bald Eagles, Great-horned Owls, raccoons and many other resident wildlife that cannot be returned to the wild due to their injuries. Our Nature Center and Education Department offer fun and educational programs for all, while our hiking trails offer an opportunity to explore native Pinelands habitats.
