     In support of field biologists, researchers, field naturalists, 
faculty members, and students with interests in the natural history 
sciences, Eagle Hill offers specialty seminars at different 
ecological scales for those who are interested in understanding 
complex natural history questions. Seminars range from watershed 
level subjects, and subjects in classical ecology, to highly 
specialized seminars in advanced biology, taxonomy, and ecological 
     In support of scientific illustrators and artists, Eagle Hill 
offers a diverse range of workshops focusing on natural history art.
     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 continually 
learning more about natural history.
     Eagle Hill field seminars and workshops 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.
