Saline Wetland

LOOKING Closer

North of Lincoln, Nebraska in the Salt Creek drainage on a Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Wildlife Management Area, this camera captures scenes from a unique location where both freshwater and saline wetlands intermingle due to their respective water sources. You can tell the differences by the differences and diversity of plant communities that appear in the frame. Saline wetlands are an endangered ecosystem that provides habitat to the endangered Salt Creek tiger beetle and many other species. This camera is retired.
