BLUESTEM Conservation Cemetery Graphic

The Orange County Department on Aging and the Project EngAGE End of Life Choices Senior Resource Team invite the public to attend a virtual discussion, Bluestem Conservation Cemetery: An Introduction, on April 12.

Why conservation burial, and why Bluestem in particular? Cemeteries are places for people to be permanently memorialized and places at which family and loved ones may gather for reflection. Conservation burial grounds serve as places where individual and community commitment to conservation and perpetuity come together. Bluestem will be a conservation cemetery designed as a nature preserve and place of reverence, with a trail network, quiet areas for reflection, open space for contemplation, and designated areas within its restored landscape for natural burial.

Join us to learn more about this exciting community endeavor. If you would like to learn more in advance of our conversation with Bluestem co-founders Heidi Hannapel and Jeff Masten, please visit

The event will take place on Tuesday, April 12, from 4 – 5:30 p.m. via a virtual platform.
