The Best Days of Our Lives: The Centennial of Maryland State Forest and Parks
half-hour Outdoors Maryland special that celebrates the development of
State Forests and Parks in Maryland from 1906 to the 2006, the centennial of
their founding. Presented in three parts, the saga unfolds in major eras,
colorful characters, and pivotal events. Through candid interviews with
descendants of historic figures, with foresters who have blazed new paths, and
with master storytellers steeped in living history and legend – The Best Days
of Our Lives illuminates the progress of the last hundred years. During
this time, Maryland landscapes evolved from ravaged forests east and west to
nearly 500,000 acres of managed public lands today – a state where no citizen
travels more than 20 miles from home to find a state park or forest. Historic
photographs from private and public archives and high-definition digital
videography illuminate the journey which is uniquely Maryland’s – and yet
resonates with the story of public land conservation in our nation. Premiering Tuesday, Nov. 14th at
7:30 p.m. & also airing on Saturday, Nov. 18th at 5:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on MPT's Outdoors Maryland.
