Located just south of Interstate 80 and east of 27th Street the Whitehead Saline Wetland is a public access wetland maintained by the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District (LPSNRD). The Whitehead Oil Company donated the 100-acre site to the LPSNRD in 1996. The site was successfully restored by the LPSNRD to preserve the rare saline wetlands and their ecosystems. The restoration project included the rehabilitation/replacement of an existing drop structure adjacent to Little Salt Creek and incorporating a water control structure to provide management capabilities that would support the existing wetland system. The project also included sediment removal along 28th street and raising the existing berm to improve access.

Today, the site contains a variety of saline wetland plants and animals, which utilize this habitat, including the state endangered saltwort plant. It is a successful NRD restoration project designed to preserve rare saline wetlands and their ecosystems.
