Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, a nature center and wildlife rehabilitation hospital, based in Medford, was awarded a $50,000 grant by Gardinier Environmental Fund, Inc.
The grant will be utilized to complete energy efficiency upgrades to Cedar Run’s facilities in order to decrease energy costs, reduce its carbon footprint and upgrade or replace current systems, including inefficient windows and doors in the Nature Center, Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital and Staff Housing.
Jeanne Gural, executive director of Cedar Run, comments, “With this grant, we will continue to be a powerful a voice on the need for everyone to reduce our carbon footprint and live with an awareness of the future by modeling it through mindful energy use and efficiency, beginning with our own buildings.”
Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge sits on 171 wooded acres on the edge of the New Jersey Pinelands. Its overall mission is to serve as a community resource on the importance of protecting and enhancing healthy ecosystems for all.
