Former Outdoor Lab Staff

From its inception by visionary founder Dr. Phoebe Hall Knipling, who was a science teacher and science supervisor for Arlington Public Schools, the Outdoor Lab has benefitted from the boundless energy, creativity and knowledge of its staff, directors and administrators. We thank all those employees who have worked for the Outdoor Lab!
