Amelia Island is the place to come for nature lovers, especially May 18 to 20. That weekend the island will host the 6th  Wild Amelia Nature Festival. This annual festival hosts a number of things to enjoy, including nature tours led by naturalists and park rangers, nature photography workshops hosted by local professionals, even a Green Expo. The Kids Niche will be a special part just for children to enjoy and will include fun things to do and even animals from the Jacksonville Zoo! Other activites include Segway exploration of Ft. George Island, a kayak Ecotour through the pristine salt marshes around Fort Clinch State Park and see beautiful birds, even alligator and dolphin, and a sailing Ecotour around Amelia and Cumberland Islands. Stand Up Paddleboarding (PUD) will be available as an activity as well as a guided nature walk through Fort Clinch, a guided bike hike, and owl and bird watching.
