The Levan Institute of Lifelong Learning at Bakersfield College is offering two spring tours that highlight unique aspects of Kern County’s agricultural industry. Both tours will be hosted by Dianne and John Hardisty.
On Saturday, March 2, Kern County rancher Sylvia Cattani has invited Levan students to watch springtime branding at her Twin Oaks ranch. Prominent Kern County agriculturalist Jack Thomson will explain branding and the ranch’s history.
On Saturday, April 20, Levan students will be treated to a rare, behind-the-scenes view of the Tejon Ranch, one of California’s largest, privately owned ranches that sprawls over 270,000 acres in the southern San Joaquin and Antelope valleys, and Tehachapi Mountains.
