Lincoln Saline Wetlands

The east side of Capital Beach Lake still supports a good saline marsh habitat that is now being preserved as the Lincoln Saline Wetlands. This marsh has attracted king rails and other uncommon to rare water-dependent birds. Enter from Lincoln’s Sun Valley Blvd, going to Westgate Blvd, then west on Lake Drive to the parking area, near an observation blind overlooking the cattail-lined marsh. Grassy wetland areas nearby are excellent for sparrows, and a wood-chip trail about a mile in length extends around the entire area. This wetland is ecologically contiguous to east via Oak Creek with the Pfizer wetlands and Oak Lake city park.
