The media has recently stepped up coverage of a serious problem facing not only North America, but also anywhere bees are used for crop pollination.  Bee colonies around the world have been failing at an increasingly alarming rate over the last several years.

As a result, we could see dramatic impacts on our food in the future unless this problem is addressed.  So what's the problem and how do we fix it? It is both simple and yet terribly complicated.

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.
