About Audrey Swindal

Swindal is known locally as “Mother Nature” to generations of campers, counselors and volunteers at the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs — Wekiva Youth Camp. Swindal was dubbed “Mother Nature” because of her extensive knowledge of flora, as well as her vivid storytelling ability. She has served the camp for more than 40 years and played an instrumental role in the development of the environmental camp located in the Wekiva Springs State Park. Not only does she lead by example in environmental stewardship, but she also takes time share knowledge and legislative updates within the conservation community. Her nonprofit of choice is Wekiva Youth Camp.
