Many people make it known to their families that they would like to have their ashes scattered in a special place. Some find comfort in knowing they will return to nature, perhaps in region where they enjoyed hiking or fishing. Family members will sometimes decide to scatter a loved one’s ashes because they do not want an urn present in the family home as a constant reminder of loss.
In order to scatter cremains safely and legally, many families have questions — while there is no national law against scattering ashes, there are rules and regulations on the federal, state and local levels, as well as common practice guidelines to follow. A permit may be required if the area is in a national park, federally managed land, private property or a body of water.
La Paloma can help ease the burden. We have access to private land in a picturesque part of Southern Utah’s natural landscape, lush with wildflowers and surrounded by tall mountains where we can scatter you loved one’s ashes for you. You will receive a customized video showing your loved one’s ashes being scattered accompanied by a message of your choosing.
