Eagle Hill Summer Field Courses

This summer, the Eagle Hill Institute (Steuben Me) is offering 5 one-week-long workshops in lichenology and 2 workshops in mycology (see below). Eagle Hill field courses 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. Our summer field courses are taught by experts in their respective fields. Course participants include beginning to advanced amateurs, graduate and undergraduate students, teachers, professional field biologists, university professors, and personnel from federal and state agencies and numerous environmental organizations.
