On Nature's Trail

On Nature's Trail

On Nature's Trail was a television show produced by the Maryland Center for Public Broadcasting in Owings Mills, Maryland in 1978. The show featured Elmer and Jean Worthley observing and discussing plants growing at different locations in Baltimore County, Maryland. Observations were made at the same locations during the Spring, Summer and Fall.

A pamphlet titled "On Natures Trail" was designed and illustrated by Stephen Doyle (A Program Service of the Maryland Center for Public Broadcasting, Owings Mills, Maryland 21117). Sketches of some of the plants seen on these weekly walks are included in this booklet, and the following information comes from this publication.
