The Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association is offering its second annual bus tour throughout the Tehachapi area, with commentary by Tehachapi’s own historian/naturalist, Jon Hammond.

Prepare yourself for a fascinating and extensive tour through Tehachapi’s history, culture and geography. Hammond knows pretty much all the history we have available for the area, and he presents it well.

This event will take place Sunday, Oct. 6, and we meet at 10 a.m. at the Cummings Valley Elementary School parking lot. The tour will take three hours, with an optional lunch afterward at Moessners’ lunch bar. The cost is $30 for members and $35 for non-members. For reservations, call Jan at 821-1533. Call at least two weeks in advance, please, as we sold out last year.
