The Tribune (SLO) - - The Cambrian - BY KATHE TAN­NER ktan­[email protected]­bune­news.com

Gath­er­ing in Old San Simeon cel­e­brates preser­va­tion of Hearst Ranch.

Dozens near Se­bas­tian’s General Store in Old San Simeon Vil­lage on Satur­day, April 6, to honor the 83,000-acre Hearst Ranch and the 2005 con­ser­va­tion agree­ment that pro­tects the land.

Dawn Dun­lap, vice pres­i­dent/in­com­ing grand pres­i­dent of the statewide Na­tive Daugh­ters of the Golden West, said the agree­ment “cur­tails any sub­di­vi­sion or large-scale de­vel­op­ment of the ranch” in her speech at the event.

Dun­lap was joined by Karen Fini, the group’s grand pres­i­dent this year; Carey Pearce, grand pres­i­dent of the statewide Na­tive Sons of the Golden West; Stephen Hearst, vice pres­i­dent of the Hearst Corp. and general man­ager of its western prop­er­ties and the great grand­son of Wil­liam Ran­dolph Hearst. Stephen Hearst was the in­sti­ga­tor of the con­ser­va­tion agree­ment be­tween the state, the cor­po­ra­tion and Cal­i­for­nia Ran­ge­land Trust.
