Amelia Island Earthkeepers was started in 2014 by Commissioner Johnny Miller. It is a sister organization to St. Mary’s Earthkeepers. AIEK has worked to protect Amelia Island’s land, sea and air. In 2015, a group led by Johnny Miller, lobbied in DC to stop seismic blasting off our coastline and a ban was put in place by President Obama’s administration. Since then, the group has worked with the St. Mary’s Riverkeeper, Rick Frey, to train a group of water collectors at points in our rivers, the Amelia, Nassau, and Egan’s Creek.
Egan’s Creek Preserve is a pet project of AIEK which cares for the trails and creek at key times during the year to be sure it’s maintenance is as non-invasive as possible.
