Caring for the Earth & Honoring Your Loved One
Memorial gifting is a wonderful way to honor your loved one and support land restoration at Carolina Memorial Sanctuary. By purchasing a native plant, memorial bench, bird house, sculpture, or donating towards a larger project such as the future gazebo or pavilion, you help us create the sanctuary of our dreams.
If you would like to purchase a memorial gift or contribution for yourself or a loved one, please submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Our restoration plan dictates where we plant and what we plant. If the burial location does not allow for a new planting, there are many areas in the Sanctuary where a memorial plant can be planted in the name of a loved one.
