Prior to Visiting
For helpful context prior to your visit, we recommend watching a few short videos as well as a slide show of visitor's comments, below. Click each heading for a link to the information.
With only thirteen conservation burial grounds or cemeteries in the country, Bluestem is part of a unique community of conservation burial practitioners working to bring awareness to the spiritual and ecological benefits of conservation burial. We are called the Conservation Burial Alliance. We encourage you to visit our colleagues in other parts of the country. You can find more information about them here.
