Whispering Hills Natural Green Cemetery & Memorial Nature Preserve

Comments

Whispering Hills Memorial Nature Preserve Nature Preserve in LaGrange, Georgia, became certified with the Green Burial Council in April 2021 as a natural burial ground on land with a historic past, a restorative presence, and a sustainable future. The Preserve’s nutrient-rich soil grows hardwoods such as white ash, white oak, red oak, redbuds, hickory, Florida maple, loblolly pines, and dogwoods, a forested setting on rolling hills with deeply dissected ravines formed by two creeks. The natural cemetery in the Preserve has forests, pastures, meadows, rock outcroppings, and two spring-fed streams, all maintained as a natural area for native trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and grasses.
