Chapel Hill's Green Way StoryWalks® feature diverse, culturally-relevant, environmentally-themed books to inspire learning about the earth and the environment and to create connections between literacy, nature, exercise, and family time. With three locations and new books every month, there's always something new to explore!
At the Library
This walk starts on the paved path across Library Drive from the lower level parking lot, wraps behind the building, and ends near the pollinator garden. On your way back down the hill, take a slight detour to check out the nature play area, or see what birds you can view from the bird blind.
At Homestead Park
This loop starts on the sidewalk near the handicapped parking spaces on the far end of the parking lot, follows the path into the woods, across two bridges, past the playground, and ends near the dog park, a few yards from where you started.
At Umstead Park
This walk, our longest at just under half a mile each way, starts just before the bridge at the southeast corner of the parking lot and follows the Tanyard Branch trail through the woods and over bridges and boardwalks to McMasters Street.
