In support of field biologists, researchers, field naturalists, faculty members, and students, and artists with interests in the natural history sciences, Eagle Hill has long been recognized as offering hard-to-find seminars which provide important opportunities for training and meeting others who are dedicated to continually learning more about natural history. These 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.
