Whitehead Saline Wetland Map

Whitehead Saline Wetland is a 100-acre tract of land donated by Whitehead Oil Company of Lincoln to the NRD for restoration in 1996. This rarest of land types is being returned to its natural state. Whitehead is located just south of Interstate 80 and east of 27th Street on Lincoln's northern outskirts.

Since the initial donation of land, there have been many easements, donations and purchases added to this growing preserve of saline wetlands, but only the NRD public access areas; Whitehead and the adjacent Schleich Wetland; are outlined on the map.
