Big Bone Lick State Park Details

Big Bone Lick State Park has been named by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior as a National Natural Landmark, one of only 582 in the nation.

The park, which joins an elite group of geological sites around the country, is significant for its combination of salt springs and late Pleistocene bone beds. Ancient creatures like the mammoth, mastodon, ground sloth and bison once roamed through mineral springs and swamps, now grassy plains covered with trees and shrubs.

The site is recognized as the birthplace of American vertebrate paleontology for its significant role in the development of scientific thought regarding extinction and the relationship of geology and paleontology the world over.

The National Park Service program, which began in 1962, recognizes significant natural history sites and helps support their conservation. Big Bone Lick is already on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the only site in Northern Kentucky to achieve natural landmark status.
