Sky Rose Ranch

Monterey County

Inspiring Future Generations of Conservation

In 2010, the Avery family donated their magnificent 11,000-acre ranch in Monterey County to the Rangeland Trust. Honoring the Avery family’s wishes and vision for the land, the Rangeland Trust put a conservation easement on the ranch and sold it to businessman, rancher and philanthropist, B. Wayne Hughes Jr. Known today as the SkyRose Ranch, Mr. Hughes has since expanded the ranch to encompass more than 16,000 acres of conserved working lands. While still an active cattle operation, the ranch also functions as a retreat for combat veterans to find hope and healing through the Mighty Oaks Warrior program.
