Beth Wardlaw grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and graduated from LSU (Geaux Tigers!). Several years later, she moved to the Jacksonville area, where she has worked at The Florida Times-Union for almost 25 years.
Beth finds peace on and around the water—swimming, waterskiing, fishing, crabbing, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing with friends, joining in river-cleanups, and shooting wildlife photography by boat are her “soul food.”
Beth quickly volunteered her kayaking skills and services when she learned about the chance to promote awareness of the St. Johns River. She’s participated in most of the practice expeditions and is looking forward to the June 9 event.
