Eagle Hill Online Seminars

A rare opportunity to tap into their knowledge of grasses and sedges without having to travel to Maine.

Flyers for the first Eagle Hill Online-only Mini-seminars are now available!

These are intensive, live, online training opportunities taught by expert instructors on Zoom. These Mini-seminars have broad geographic applicability and their formats 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. See below for flyers with scheduling details and descriptions.

Participants need to have a Zoom account (https://zoom.us ; sign-up is free). They will receive a secure link to join the instructor before each class.

Individual classes will be recorded and made available to stream (not download) for the duration of the seminar by its participants, so they are able to review them or make up missed ones.
