Tour St. Louis’s most beautiful cemetery – Bellefontaine – and learn about their options for green burials, free of conventional chemicals and non-renewable resources. During the tour, we’ll discuss the environmental impact of modern burials and the decision to leave a smaller ecological footprint through a green burial, the oldest and most traditional type. Bellefontaine Cemetery, an accredited arboretum, is known as “the other sculpture park” because of its ornate monuments and rich history. The tour takes us to its famous and infamous residents during fall colors.
