NATURAL HISTORY SEMINARS
    In support of field biologists, modern field naturalists, and 
students of the natural history sciences, Eagle Hill offers specialty 
seminars and workshops at different ecological scales for those who 
are interested in understanding, addressing, and solving complex 
ecological questions. Seminars topics range from watershed level 
subjects, and subjects in classical ecology, to highly specialized 
seminars in advanced biology, taxonomy, and ecological restoration. 
Eagle Hill has long been recognized as offering hard-to-find seminars 
and workshops which provide important opportunities for training and 
meeting others who are likewise dedicated to the study of the natural 
history sciences.
    Eagle Hill field seminars are of special interest because they 
focus on the natural history of one of North America's most 
spectacular and pristine natural areas, the coast of eastern Maine 
from Acadia National Park to Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge and 
beyond. Most seminars combine field studies with follow-up lab 
studies and a review of the literature. Additional information is 
provided in lectures, slide presentations, and discussions. Seminars 
are primarily taught for people who already have a reasonable 
background in a seminar program or in related subjects, or who are 
keenly interested in learning about a new subject. Prior discussions 
of personal study objectives are welcome.
