Restoration Work to Begin at Arbor Lake

The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department will begin work this month on the Arbor Lake Wetland Restoration Project. The project includes:

Arbor Lake is north of Interstate 80 along N. 27th Street. The 132-acre area is owned by the City and contains more than 65 acres of saline wetlands. The public recreation area provides habitat for a variety of wildlife and plant species.

The project is being funded by two grants received by the City from the Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund and the Environmental Protection Agency through the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.
