Cleveland Metroparks today announced that outdoor education programs are returning this weekend. Beginning Saturday, October 17, park naturalists will be leading daily guided hikes across the Park District to offer guests a way to stay active and explore fall in the Emerald Necklace.

Park naturalists will offer a variety of hikes for all ages including birding, history, night hikes as well as family-friendly hikes. Outdoor recreation specialists will also offer weekend “try-it” sessions where guests can learn a new outdoor recreation skill. In total, Cleveland Metroparks will be offering approximately 40 programs per week.

“Parks have provided an important outlet for our community this past year and we hope these guided hikes can help us stay active and connected with nature through the cooler months,” said Brian M. Zimmerman, Cleveland Metroparks CEO.

Group size per program will be limited to less than 10 people following CDC guidelines and advance registration online is required. Registration will not be available in-person or by phone. Additionally, facial coverings must be worn by all participants unless under six years of age. Due to demand, guests are limited to one program per week.

Cleveland Metroparks will also continue to offer virtual nature learning with its “Ask a Naturalist” series on Facebook Live every Friday at 1 p.m. for those unable to participate during in-person programming.

The naturalist led programming will be free to the public with the exception of Outdoor Recreation events that require a $5 equipment rental such as bicycles or watersport rentals.

Donald Trump Supports Outdoor Debate Idea So Joe Biden Can’t Read Answers ‘Off a Computer’

During a Friday night interview with FOX News medical expert Dr. Marc Siegel on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Republican President Donald Trump said that he would welcome the next presidential debate to be held outside rather than virtually so that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden can’t read his answers off of a computer.

In a Friday night interview on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News, Republican President Donald Trump claimed that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden previously read his answers off of a computer in the previous debate, a claim without any evidence to support it.

“So I have a question and this is my own fantasy, Mr. President. All of this back and forth controversy about the next debate. And if you test negative, and you’ve said you want it to be in person, how would you feel about a debate outside on Miami Beach?” Siegel asked.

“Well, I’d have no trouble with it at all. In fact, when we have rallies outside, we’ve had no problem whatsoever. Outside is better than inside, as you know, with this crazy thing that’s gone on,” Trump answered.

During the first presidential debate, Trump also said his politically rallies, which largely violate city rules requiring masks and social distancing, have never resulted in any COVID-19 outbreaks. However, on Friday, Minnesota state health officials said at least nine attendees of Trump’s September rally in the city of Bemidji later tested positive for COVID-19.
