Eagle Hill Masthead

The University of Maine and the Humboldt Institute

A shared summer tradition of educational opportunities in the natural history sciences and scientific illustration!

Dining Hall from SW copyright Eagle HillThe programs at the Humboldt Institute are of special interest to UMaine students because they focus on the classical 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. Many of the programs at the Institute are rarely offered by other institutions. They represent an exceptional value in education because they are efficient and intensive in focus and are taught by instructors who are leading authorities in their fields. Programs are offered for an advanced and professional audience, well-qualified undergraduate and graduate students, and amateur naturalists.
