Warner Wetlands is located near 98th street and Interstate-80 in Lancaster County. Saline meadows and associated plant communities are present on the site. The majority of the property is located within the established floodway and 100-year floodplain of Salt Creek.

In the late 1990's, approximately 23 acres north of the Interstate were donated in the name of Charles L. Warner for the preservation of wildlife and wetland restoration to the Lower Platte South NRD. An easement was also granted along Salt Creek at this time.

In 2004, the Lower Platte South NRD purchased an adjacent 140 acres (40 acres north of I-80 and 100 acres south of I-80) from the Board of Educational Lands and Funds. A 40 acre parcel south of Interstate 80 and adjacent to this property was then transferred from the City of Lincoln to the Lower Platte South NRD to complete the Warner Wetlands complex. The Warner Wetlands complex consists of nearly 200 acres.

Warner Wetlands is designated a youth mentor hunting site in Nebraska. In 2010, the LPSNRD entered into an agreement with the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission to allow youth mentor archery hunting on the north side of I-80.
