Cleo L. Craig Child Development Laboratory Celebrates Outdoor Classroom Opening
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.
