The most cost-effective way to enjoy the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge—a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of New Jersey’s wildlife and habitats through education, conservation and rehabilitation—is to become a member.  

Membership benefits include: year-round hiking, wildlife watching, picnicking and an outdoor children’s play area; free members-only events; discounts on programs and birthday parties; discounts in the Nature Center Gift Shop; and receiving the Tales from Cedar Run email newsletter. 

Cedar Run provides critical treatment and rehabilitation services to more than 5,500 injured and/or orphaned wildlife yearly to New Jersey native wildlife. On the 171-acre preserved Pinelands property houses the Woodford Nature Center, a wildlife housing area with nearly 60 native residents, three hiking trails 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. Cedar Run provides a safe outdoor place to explore the outdoors, learn about New Jersey wildlife and make lasting memories. Events and programs are held all year long—virtual and in-person events for all ages.
