Rachel Palmer has come to Webster Pond, a small sanctuary for ducks and geese, since she was a child.
On Tuesday, she brought her daughter, Jessa Palmer, 15, and two granddaughters — Myla, 3, and Aleigha, 4 — to feed geese at the pond, located in Syracuse’s Valley neighborhood. Rachel Palmer wants her daughter and granddaughters to have the same experience she had as a child.
Webster Pond is operated by the Anglers Association of Onondaga and home to hundreds of ducks and geese. The public is encouraged to feed the birds with corn purchased on-site for a donation.
The pond is open all year from sunrise to sunset.
