Abstract

An article on the Eagle Hill Field Research Station in Steuben, a "summer camp for (adult) naturalists." The schedule is filled with seminars on topics such as mushrooms, ferns, freshwater mollusks, and forest insects. The offerings attract professionals, but serious amateurs are welcome. The cuisine is as noteworthy as the depth of its curriculum. Joerg-Henner Lotze, 44, founded and directs the ten-year-old program. While most field stations focus on training programs for undergraduates, the field station focuses on the needs of professionals and brings in noted authorities in specialized fields of natural science. Lotze's mother, Ingrid Lotze, oversees the kitchen. In the winter, she returns to New York, while he stays on and edits "Maine Naturalist," the field station's journal.
