Deer & Wildlife Management

For many people, the sight of a white-tailed deer bounding gracefully through the forest is an exciting and memorable experience that they would like to see more often.

But, for an increasing number of farmers whose crops have been devastated by deer, or for drivers who have had the costly experience of hitting a deer with an automobile, there is a growing concern that deer are "too much of a good thing."

W. Brooks Paternotte took the helm of Irvine Nature Center as executive director in July 2013 and immediately began building on the strong 35-year foundation. Brooks is a Baltimore native who was a teacher, coach, advisor, dean and Head of the Middle School during his 13 years at Boys’ Latin School in Baltimore. He is also an instructor and ambassador of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and is a Leave No Trace Master, as well as an avid outdoorsman and a features writer for FlyLife Magazine.
