2024 OUR 20th ANNIVERSARY YEAR!!!!!!

      Badger Run has been helping the sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife of southern Oregon for 20 years as of 2024! During that time thousands of animals have come into our care. Many have been mended and released back to the wild; a few join our educational ambassador team. We are indebted to our supporters and the small cadre of dedicated volunteers who have made Badger Run a success over the years. Did you know we have only one part-time paid staff member? Everyone else is a volunteer.
    We here at Badger Run are also committed to education in hopes that we inspire folks to take care of our environment and the animals we share this earth with. Over these 20 years we have done thousands of educational presentations around the Klamath Basin to this end. If you are interested in scheduling a tour just call us to make an appointment. We are also open the last Saturday of every month from noon to 4pm for “drop-in” tours. Also be sure to check our Facebook page for daily educational posts.
    As we continue into the future we are committed to always improving care. We were able to complete our new quarantine facility in December 2023 to deal with patient intakes in the shadow of the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreak.

TOURS AGAIN STARTING JANUARY 28, 2023

GREAT NEWS! We will again be open for tours on a LIMITED BASIS. HPAI (Bird Flu) is still prevalent in the area so we will be keeping our Ambassadors safe and not having as much “one-on-one” with them, but still lots of fun and great information. We will be open to the public the last Saturday of each month, starting on January 28th, noon-4 pm (no appointment needed). We will have limited private tours (call for an appointment) as we can accomodate them. We ask that all tour guests wear clean and/or sanitized clothing, jackets and shoes for their tour. HPAI is so contagious, you could accidentally track it in from your backyard to our facility and put all our Ambassadors at risk! (It is virtually 100% fatal in birds of prey such as our hawks, owls, eagles and vultures!) We will have a foot bath of disinfectant at the gate, and will ask everyone to dip the soles of their shoes in it, so please wear waterproof footwear. Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!
