Outdoor Lab’s New Classroom Building Achieves
The New Outdoor Lab Building
The Phoebe Hall Knipling Outdoor Laboratory is a 210-acre facility that supports the science program. It provides a place for environmental education for elementary and secondary school children, a place for children to do water study, to come face to face with creatures native to the area, and to walk through the woods learning about the plants and terrain. The facility is staffed by Arlington teachers but maintained by a non-profit association – The Arlington Outdoor Education Association, Inc. of Arlington County Schools.
