Ethan Ellis worked collaboratively with the City of Waterloo and Morrison-Talbott Library to create the StoryWalk installation as his Eagle Scout service project. The StoryWalk provides an opportunity for the community to enjoy a story while walking the grounds of the library, and promotes early literacy, physical activity, and family time together outdoors. The support of many local organizations made the installation possible.
