About the Refuge

Cedar Run Refuge was founded in the late 1950s by the Woodford family and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1981 for:
•Wildlife Rehabilitation
•Environmental Education
•Habitat Preservation

•174 wooded acres surrounding pristine Cedar Run Lake
•Wildlife rehabilitation hospital and outdoor live-animal compound
•Woodford Environmental Education Center with classrooms, hands-on exhibits, library and offices
•Wooded nature trails that link uplands and wetlands

More than 19,000 children participate annually in the Refuge’s education programs and hundreds more join outdoor adventures in the Pine Barrens and attend family weekend workshops. Programs include group tours, Refuge on Wheels, weekend workshops for families, field trips and adult courses.

Wildlife Rehabilitation:
Nearly 4,000 wild animals were treated at the rehab hospital yearly with about 40% returning safely to the wild. Others, whose injuries prevent release, remain in our outdoor wildlife housing area to help the public learn about native species.

Habitat Conservation:
Through the New Jersey Green Acres Program the Woodford Family has preserved 171 of Cedar Run’s acres for future generations. We are working with state and local agencies and private non-profits to create a Greenway across the southern parts of Medford and Evesham townships, adjacent to our southern boundary.
