Alum Spring Park


Alum Spring Park sits in the heart of Fredericksburg and provides a pleasant creek-side setting engrossed by towering trees. In addition to the park’s resident northern cardinal, blue jay and Carolina wren, this area should be checked during migration, especially after inclement weather. During this time, dozens of warblers, vireos and other neotropical migrants, including an occasional vagrant, may be found. In the summer months, check along the stream for ebony jewelwings and other damselflies as well as eastern amberwing and eastern pondhawk dragonflies. Butterflies to look for in the park include question mark, comma and common buckeye.
