The Amelia Island Nature Center has a fully stocked retail shop (in case you still have some gift buying to do) complete with binoculars and field guides to fulfill all your exploring needs. You may visit with the Center’s locally rescued critters, talk to a naturalist, rent a fishing pole, or sign up for one of the Nature Center’s many tours.
These include bike trips, hiking excursions, beach combing, kayaking, Segway tours, and even trips to the Okefenokee Swamp in GA. A special activity called the Junior Naturalist Tour allows a youngster to follow a Naturalist and help them complete their morning duties, which include feeding the animals, cleaning their tanks, and assisting them with other tasks around the Center. For more information or to register for a tour, call (904) 261-6161. The Amelia Island Nature Center is open daily 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
