Did your loved one specifically request that you and your family scatter their cremated remains in a certain place following their cremation services in Sacramento, CA? If they did, then you should, by all means, listen to them and scatter their remains in that place (as long as it’s legal to do so!). But if they didn’t advise you as to where they wanted their remains scattered, you should take some time to learn about the best places to scatter someone’s remains. Discover some of the places that you should consider scattering your loved one’s remains below.
Unfortunately, you aren’t going to be able to scatter a loved one’s remains on the beach in the aftermath of their Sacramento, CA cremation. This is strictly forbidden since it could lead to your loved one’s remains coming into contact with people, animals, fish, etc. But if your loved one was a big fan of the water, you can have their remains taken out to sea and scattered there. You’ll just need to follow the rules and regulations set up by the U.S. Coast Guard for those families wishing to scatter their loved one’s remains at sea.
You might be under the impression that there is no way you’ll be able to scatter a loved one’s remains in a place that is as beautiful as a national park. But believe it or not, most national parks will allow you to scatter a loved one’s remains in them. You’ll just need to reach out to a national park in advance to obtain the proper permission. You’ll also need to make sure that you scatter a loved one’s remains in a place that won’t get a lot of foot traffic in a national park.
You might not be able to legally scatter a loved one’s remains on top of any mountain in your area. But depending on where a mountain is located, you should be able to scatter your loved one’s remains at or even just near the top of it. The top of a mountain is a very majestic place, which will make it the ideal location to shatter a person’s remains. It’ll serve as the perfect backdrop for a loved one’s ash-scattering ceremony when you hold it.
Generally speaking, you and your family aren’t going to be allowed to scatter a loved one’s remains on private property.

If your family has owned a particular house for a very long time now, you might want to think about scattering a loved one’s remains there to make them a part of the land that your family owns forever.
