Arkansas’ Green Cemetery Initiative

No cemetery operating in the State of Arkansas is designated as a green or natural cemetery.

Finding the land for a Green Cemetery

The northwest corner of the state of Arkansas is home to a beautifully diverse collection of people. This rich diversity is evident in our wide array of lifestyles and spiritual beliefs, a creative and vibrant artistic energy, an esteemed academic presence, a strong environmental consciousness, and an amiable social atmosphere.

All these factors contribute to the flavor, the image, the appeal of Northwest Arkansas as a great place to live. We want to promote the notion that this is also a good place to die – – or, at least, to be buried.
