Nature lovers can tour on foot, by kayak, paddleboard, sailboat or bike — even on Segway — at the seventh annual festival, held in Fernandina Beach, Fort Clinch, Fort George and Amelia Island. Besides the eco tours, Wild Amelia has the popular sea turtle release (pictured), photography classes, kids’ activities, nature hikes, birding and an EcoExpo. Two new events are at the Jacksonville Zoo: dinner and a behind-the-scenes tour and a private photography shoot and brunch. May 17-19, fees vary by event; EcoExpo events are free, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. May 18, Atlantic Recreation Center, 251-0016, wildamelia.com.
