Setting The Standard For Conservation Burial

In 2010 Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery (PCCC) officially opened as the fourth of now ten conservation burial grounds in the United States. Conservation burial begins with the choice for a natural burial where embalming is not permitted, there are no vaults, and everything used in the burial is biodegradable, and is taken a step further by partnering with land conservation efforts. PCCC's 94 acres are built into and a part of ACT's Prairie Creek Preserve which is more than 600 acres. All those who come to be buried or visit the cemetery contribute to the land as a living memorial and our community‚Äôs legacy of conservation. As both a cemetery and preserve, Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery invites visitors to connect with nature in new and meaningful ways.
