Voting's Open Through November, So Put Your Thinking Caps On!
The beautiful bison above are residents of the Elk & Bison Prairie in Kentucky’s Land Between the Lakes. I have not had the pleasure of meeting bison at Big Bone Lick State Park, so I don’t have any pictures of them.
Big Bone Lick State Historic Site is looking for a name for its newest bison heifer and wants your help.
The park will announce the winning name Dec. 1 during a special holiday gathering, starting at 10 a.m. at the park visitor’s center. Guests will also have a chance to meet and learn about the bison.
The deadline for online voting is Nov. 30. The link to vote is: http://parks.ky.gov/parks/historicsites/big-bone-lick/
The park will also offer door prizes and have discounts at its gift shop on Dec. 1.
For more information, call the park at 859-384-3522.
Big Bone Lick State Historic Site has picnic areas, a 62-site campground with electricity, grills, water, restrooms, showers, a pool and small grocery. There are sports fields, and the indoor-outdoor museum has collections of bones from ancient creatures once attracted to the mineral springs of the area. On the grounds are life-size replicas of mastodons and bison. There is also a live bison herd at the park.
