President / Senior Leader / Photo Instructor
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 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 Wildside Nature Tours was founded.
Kevin’s photographs and articles have appeared in publications such as Nature Photographer, WildBird, Audubon and Philadelphia Magazines, as well as the National Geographic web site and many natural history books.
Kevin teaches beginning birding and beginning nature photography classes through several adult education venues as well as through seminars and workshops for groups, organizations and schools. Kevin also founded the PA Young Birder’s Club, sharing his love of nature while inspiring kids to get outside.
Kevin has a knack for tailoring each trip to the group’s desires to be sure everyone has a fun and memorable experience!
