When you imagine your final resting place, options such as a casket or urn probably come to mind. However, if you’re concerned about the environmental effects of burial or cremation or simply want to do something more unusual, there are more intriguing ways than ever to settle the matter of your, well, matter.
Please join us on Thursday August 13, 2020 for the webinar Body options: Making decisions about your final resting place. We will hear about planning and decision-making regarding burial, cremation, and a diversity of other options.

- Presented by: Pam Hunter, End-of-Life Educator
Pam Hunter: Pam has had a number of roles, from supporting learning and behaviourally challenged children to health food store owner to environmental activist. Her latest challenge has been bringing the topic of death to light and informing people of what they can do now to prepare for their inevitable end of life. Her interests in the environment and death have come together in her current project of establishing a green burial park/cemetery in Manitoba. From one passion to another — she loves to travel and has lived on 4 continents. Her most interesting trip has been spending time with the tribes of Papua New Guinea.
