Humboldt Field Research Institute Charity Profile
The Humboldt Institute is located on the eastern coast of Maine and is perhaps best known for the extensive series of advanced and professional-level natural history science seminars it has offered in Maine since 1987, along with ecological restoration seminars and expeditions to the neotropics. It publishes the Northeastern Naturalist and Southeastern Naturalist, two scholarly, peer-reviewed, natural history science journals which provide an integrated publishing and research resource for eastern North America, including eastern Canada. With this in mind, the Institute works closely in tandem with the Eagle Hill Foundation, which has interests in interdisciplinary aspects of the study of nature and natural history. The Institute and Foundation share facilities and are working together on developing an interdisciplinary retreat style study and meeting facility on the summit of Eagle Hill.
