Since 2006, LANDMATTERS has researched and explored models of green burial, conservation burial grounds, and natural cemeteries with an appreciation for the design of a conservation project that preserves a region’s rural character, ensures healthy wildlife corridors, protects important stream corridors, and ultimately, provides the community an enduring place of rest and regeneration.
Land trusts own land and understand the potential for certain properties to help support the organization’s mission through complementary revenue generating uses. Conservation burial grounds can develop revenue to support land trust operations, stewardship of land and the acquisition of additional conservation lands.
We support a land trust's development of a conservation burial ground project while not drifting from its own mission orientation.
