Attraction details
Owner description: The Anglers Association of Onondaga is a not for profit organization with fish and wildlife as the main attraction. Webster pond is a small sanctuary located in the city of Syracuse NY at 2004 Valley Dr. Volunteers operate the pond by opening the establishment so that the public can donate and feed the wildlife. The pond is open year around, opening at approximately 9AM-9PM We also have other activities such as a Junior fishing program for ages 7 to 15. Summer and fall concerts sponsored by outside venders and much more. UPDATE: Please note: a new non- profit group was formed to assist the Anglers Association in applying for grants, as they don't have the qualifications. In addition, we will help with maintenance, projects, and fundraising. The non-profit "Friends Of Wildlife" was started by Chad Norton and friends. All funds raised by this corporation will go directly to Webster Pond unless otherwise noted . Please make all trail donations payable to: Friends of Wildlife. for more information or to make a donation please call 315-727-2922

There is staff on location where you can get feed to hand feed the birds! You can also find HUGE Trout in the pond also!

You can buy feed for the ducks/geese there. Don't give bread as it hurts them--the people there will explain. If you like ducks/geese coming to YOU to feed, this is your kind of place. They'll gulp it from your hands and crowd you, but I LOVE this kind of thing. IE, they aren't shy, but I believe they appreciate your gentleness. Benches to sit. Drive slow--they walk across the street! Free. You can walk around the pond and see the fish/mud puppies if you look hard.
