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
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.
