Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Trust for Natural Legacies, Inc. is a non-profit land trust that preserves and restores natural areas by owning, operating and promoting nature preserves throughout the Midwest. We are committed to offering ecologically sensitive programs on our nature preserves that provide public opportunities for recreation, education, scientific research, and limited natural burial. These programs are critical to our mission, because they result in related environmental benefits to the community and generate long-term, multi-generational public attachment to and involvement in the nature preserves. By fostering strong, long-term family and community attachments to the nature preserves, these programs ensure that our preserves are socially, legally, spirtiually and financially-sustainable.
Green cemeteries are a focal program area of Trust for Natural Legacies. Green burial, or natural burial, uses biodegradable caskets, no cement vaults, and no toxic embalming fluid. It allows for natural decomposition, which respects the ecological cycles of life and death. Cemetery nature preserves also protect and restore thousands of acres of important natural areas. They give people the chance to know that in their death they leave behind at least one piece of earth in better shape. The preserves are both a place of burial and rebirth--a space that protects and enhances native plants and wildlife, can be used for education and research, and provides a sacred space for contemplation.
