Cleo L. Craig Child Development Laboratory Celebrates Outdoor Classroom Opening

the race is on

One-two-three-GO! The Land Run of 2017 was on as children raced to experience for the first time the Return to Nature Outdoor Learning Environment at the Cleo L. Craig Child Development Laboratory. College of Human Sciences Dean Stephan Wilson welcomed a crowd of children, donors and friends on May 5 to celebrate the grand opening.

“This has been a long-time dream of early childhood education faculty in human development and family science,” Wilson said during the ribbon cutting ceremony. “We are grateful to the Craig family for so enthusiastically supporting the project. Their gifts to the CDL continue to benefit students through the creation of this impressive cutting edge ‘outdoor classroom’ for teaching, learning and research.”
