The Liz Hair Nature Walk is located along Little Sugar Creek from Morehead Street to East Boulevard. This project included stream enhancement as well as creation of a section of Greenway Trail. The main goal of the stream enhancement was to increase the number of fish and other aquatic life. The channel of this 3,400 linear foot section of Little Sugar Creek had previously been straightened. To improve the function of the stream and aquatic habitat, this project created riffles and pools by placing boulder structures in the creek. Action was also taken to reduce stream bank erosion.
Liz Hair was the first woman elected to the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners. She took office in 1972 and became Commission Chair in 1974. Hair was instrumental in developing the County's initial Greenway Master Plan.
