LOOKING Closer

Nebraska’s eastern saline wetlands were nearly all destroyed from a century and more of growth of the City of Lincoln, modification of Salt Creek and its tributaries, and land development for agricultural use. The saline wetlands are considered one of the most restricted natural communities in Nebraska. Today, there are efforts from the community and a partnership of conservation agencies to conserve the remaining remnants of these unique wetlands. This camera focuses from above on an area where salt-loving plants are abundant. Saline groundwater rises to the surface continually in this former oxbow of Little Salt Creek still containing the framework of an old railroad trestle.
