Winter Prep

All across our listening area, many Canada geese are flying in their “V” formations heading south. White-tailed deer have changed into their dull brown winter coats. And fox kits are getting fatter and furrier. 

Even though fall has truly arrived and winter’s snow is soon to follow, our local wildlife doesn’t halt its daily routines. During this time of year, animals Maryland-wide are modifying their behavior patterns and adjusting in some really interesting ways.

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.
