Wilderness Park: Why does it close so often?
Though Claremont’s skies were noticeably clearer this week, prompting the city to reopen the Wilderness Park on Wednesday, the weekend forecast is unfortunately calling for more very unhealthy air. Monday and Tuesday’s air quality index numbers were 99 and 38, respectively. But the slide began Wednesday when the air was forecast as “moderate” at 96, with Thursday predicted to be 140 and “unhealthful for sensitive groups.” Friday’s forecast is even worse, calling for a “very unhealthful” reading of 217. Saturday’s is nearly as toxic, at 214. COURIER photo/Peter WeinbergerEntire Story
