Help Name The New Bison At Big Bone Lick State Historic Site

Voting's Open Through November, So Put Your Thinking Caps On!

Bison at the LBL's Elk and Bison Prairie

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.
