Eagle Hill Masthead

Online-only Mini-Seminars ... Calendar

Eagle Hill natural history training programs have the following three formats.

Summer Week-long Seminars ... These are the traditional week-long, in-person, and in-residence field seminars we have been offering since 1987. Please see ... Link.

Fall Weekend Workshops ... Our in-person and in-residence workshops offer shorter intensive learning opportunites over weekends with expert instructors. We have been offering them since 2014. Please see ... Link.

Online-only Mini-seminars ... This page features our first-ever Online-only Mini-seminars. They are being developed as an annual series as a direct result of and as a creative response to the coronavirus. They are intensive training opportunities with expert instructors who teach their classes live by way of Zoom. They have broad geographic applicability and have formats that are variable, depending upon the subject matter and the teaching preferences of the instructors. Each includes suggestions for readings, online videos, and websites to efficiently augment what is covered during online presentations. All are taught outside of normal work-week hours, i.e., during evenings and on weekends. Participants need to have a Zoom account (https://zoom.us ... signup is free). They will receive a secure link to join the instructor before each class. Classes will be recorded so partipants can review them or make up missed ones.
