Megan Edwards Crewe has been birding since childhood, when she discovered she could have her father all to herself (rather than sharing him with her brother and sisters) if she was willing to get up very early on Saturdays and tramp around the woods in search of birds.
After graduating from Purdue University, she sampled an impressive variety of jobs (including veterinary technician, park ranger, junior high school science teacher, freelance writer, and computer programmer) before discovering Field Guides. Since joining the company more than two decades ago, Megan — who brims with information and enthusiasm — has delighted in sharing the wonders and adventures of birding and the natural world with tour participants.
One unexpected bonus of the job was meeting her husband, Mike, with whom she co-led a trip to France in 2000. They now live in a tiny seaside village in England’s Norfolk county. There, they are busily converting their garden into a wildlife haven and recording all the many species of flora and fauna that make use of it — more than 1200 species so far!
