The Arlington Outdoor Education Association (AOEA) and the Arlington County Public Schools (APS) are partners in the Outdoor Lab. The Outdoor Lab is owned and maintained by the nonprofit Arlington Outdoor Education Association (AOEA). The Outdoor Lab’s Educational Programs are designed and delivered by Arlington Public Schools.
The purpose of the Phoebe Hall Knipling Outdoor Lab is to provide a facility and support for a school program designed to give Arlington students an opportunity to learn science, outdoor skills, arts, and humanities in a natural setting. Annually, the Lab provides hands-on outdoor and environmental education to more than 9,000 students from elementary grades through high school.
The Phoebe Hall Knipling Outdoor Laboratory is a 225-acre facility in Fauquier County that provides a natural classroom for Arlington Public School students. It has a spring-fed stream, a pond, nature hiking trails, plant, and animal identification areas. Camping sites, a classroom, kitchen, and dining facilities are used daily during the school year. An observatory includes a 10 inch reflecting telescope for astronomy studies. Four classes per week visit the Outdoor Lab, one of which has an overnight, and there are three week-long summer camps.
