The program airs on Baltimore County cable channel 25.

Featured segments include:

Host Carolyn Black-Sotir speaks with leaders from the Lake Roland Nature Council about outdoor Art on the Trail.

The Patapsco River Valley is rich in railroad history, “adult beverage” history, and scientific history. Mary Catherine Cochran from Patapsco Heritage Greenway talks about distilleries, railroad bridges, Benjamin Banneker, and ruins to discover on the trails.

For more than 50 years, the Shriver Concert Series has brought world-class musicians to Baltimore. Catherine Cochran, executive director of the series, tells smARTS that many of this season’s performances will be in Baltimore County.

The curator at the Hampton National Historic site shares stories about a doll’s tea party and luxurious painted window shades at the 18th century mansion in Towson.
