“What’s on YOUR bucket list?" Lafayette Public Library launches the Before I Die Boulder County project, an interactive public art project that invites people to share their personal aspirations in public space. The original wall was created by artist Candy Chang in 2011 on an abandoned house in New Orleans, with chalkboard paint and the simple stenciled sentence, “Before I die I want to _____.” At the BID Wall snap a picture and share it with the world on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram: #BeforeIDieBC

Natural Transitions, “A Resource for Green and Holistic Approaches to the End of Life,” supports families by providing them with education about options to create meaningful, personal rites of passage at death. This session will cover the dying process, the option of family-led after-death care (aka “home funerals”), and the earth-friendly option of green burial. Green burial means no embalmed bodies and biodegradable funerary wares (caskets etc) in a setting with natural landscaping, usually native vegetation and low resource usage that avoids the use of chemical pesticides, fertilizers etc. Participants will gain the knowledge and the confidence to create beautiful, meaningful and affordable rites of passage at death that are life-changing for the bereaved and profoundly honoring of the dead. The session will include a community art piece that considers and honors death as a part of life. Presented by Mary Reilly-McNellan, Diana Zucco, and Latané Hill of Natural Transitions.
