Meeting of the Waters Creek

Meeting of the Waters Creek passes through and, in some cases, under the university campus. The creek has been channeled into tunnels passing underneath several campus buildings, including Kenan Stadium. It emerges in the Coker Pinetum, south of Ehringhaus dorm, and flows into the North Carolina Botanical Garden, where it joins Morgan Creek. Coker Pinetum is a twenty-five-acre area that connects the campus with the Botanical Garden. Botany professor William C. Coker gave the property to the university to be used for teaching and as a living laboratory.
