Kevin Loughlin was raised to appreciate nature while exploring the woodlands of Pennsylvania as a child. At age six, during a family trip through the American West, Kevin became fascinated with photography as well as seeing the new and different birds throughout North America. Instilled with a love for travel and seeking new, exciting destinations, he felt a desire to share his experiences with others and in 1993 founded Wildside Nature Tours. Kevin’s photographs and articles have appeared in publications such as WildBird, Audubon and Philadelphia Magazines, as well as National Geographic and WWF websites plus many natural history books. He has also authored a Pocket Guide to Digital Nature Photography and currently has two more book projects on his plate.
Kevin also teaches beginning birding classes and photography workshops through several adult education venues as well as through seminars and workshops for groups, organizations and schools. In his ‘spare time’ Kevin also founded the PA Young Birder’s Club, sharing his love of nature while inspiring kids to get outside.

Festival Organizer Note About Field Workshops
We want you to enjoy and learn as much as you can in your field workshops. Therefore it is important to arrive early and have all of your gear ready to go. Each field workshop will begin with a 10 minute overview of the subject and techniques. Have your gear ready when you arrive so you do not miss out or hold up the group. Suggested gear lists are included with each field workshop.
