Classic Rock 102.9 MGK and Comcast Business salute local businesses that have thrived and survived during these last few tough years, and continue to serve their communities along the way. This week, we salute Lisa Franco and staff at Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge in Medford, New Jersey.
Nestled at the edge of the beautiful New Jersey Pine Barrens, Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, a non-profit organization, comprises 171 acres of pinelands, an outdoor Wildlife Housing Area with nearly 60 native residents, and a wildlife rehabilitation hospital. Their mission is to protect the precious wildlife in the area, while educating the community as to the importance of a healthy ecosystem.
The rehab facility at Woodford sees, and takes care of, over 6,000 injured or orphaned wild animals every year, while their outdoor housing facility has nearly 60 resident (including owls, eagles, vultures, raccoons and turtles!) who are too injured to be out in the wild, but who enjoy life on the refuge.
Through the various on-site and outreach programs offered at the refuge, more than 20,000 local students have visited and learned all about the important work going on at Woodford. In addition, there are over 3 miles of trails available for walkers and hikers to check out, 7 days a week. Just keep your eyes out for the Jersey Devil!
I’m so grateful for the work they do in my old hometown of Medford! Congratulations to Lisa and her staff at Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge in Medford, New Jersey, our MGK/Comcast Small Business salute recipient of the week!
