Overview
More
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

It's a place where ducks know they have a home. It's great for adults and children. But they is too much duck poop or sh** in that place. It's hard to find a bench or a spot that is n't full of it. If they...More

The reason you did not see a lot of waterfowl is it is nesting season and we have a predator problem we are working on it. I am sorry your visit weren't a pleasant one. anything we can do? Chad 315-727-2922

At Websters pond you'll see several water fowl. The park has food dispensers and asks that you only feed this for the safety of the fowl and fish. They do a great job maintaining the area. Highly recommend you bring your children here every year....More

Webster's pond has added a mile long trail around the pond to get some exercise while enjoying wildlife. It's a pleasant, flat, trail with an opportunity to feed ducks and geese along the way! Corn kernels are available for 25 cents a container. In summer...More
