          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 restoration.
          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.
