In true Western style, A Western Affair 2018 brought California’s rancher conservationists from across the state to celebrate. A Western Affair 2018 took place on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the historic Hearst Ranch in San Luis Obispo County’s Old San Simeon Village. The evening brought The West to life while culminating in fine dining and superb wines in an elegant setting overlooking the ocean.
The 83,000-acre Hearst Ranch is a working cattle ranch that was preserved forever in 2005 through a conservation easement held by California Rangeland Trust. Its selection as the location for this special celebration, with views overlooking both Hearst Ranch and Hearst Castle, will serve as a reminder of the critical importance of California Rangeland Trust’s commitment to conservation.
