Arbor Lake Complex Wetland Restoration Project

Project Client: Saline Wetland Conservation Partnership
Project Location: North of Lincoln, Nebraska
Project Categories: Wetlands

The City of Lincoln’s Arbor Lake Complex (ALC) is a unique 132-acre property on the north edge of Lincoln, Nebraska that contains a diverse habitat of saline wetland and grassland areas. The City of Lincoln acquired the original Arbor Lake site as mitigation to offset the impacts of wetland fill resulting from the construction of the Capital Parkway West bypass in west Lincoln. In 2004, the City of Lincoln purchased an additional 69 acres of property to the east and south of the original Arbor Lake site with funding provided by the Nebraska Environmental Trust. The additional property includes saline flats, grassland areas and a meandering tributary to Little Salt Creek. It provides a buffer that protects the fragile saline wetland areas from future land uses associated with a developing community. The City of Lincoln and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC) manages the ALC.
