State park unveiling interpretive signs

UNION, Ky. (AP) - A trail at Big Bone Lick State Park in northern Kentucky is getting new interpretive signs.

The park and supporters will unveil the signs for Big Bone Creek Trail on Wednesday afternoon, and Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker will make an announcement regarding efforts to recognize and market the park's historical importance.

The event gets started at 3:30 p.m. EDT at the park's visitor center in Union. Scientists and experts will offer brief walks to explain the interpretive signs, and refreshments are planned.

Ancient creatures once roamed the area of the park in Boone County. On Saturday and Sunday, Great Outdoor Weekend events will be held at the park, where paleontologists, archaeologists and historians will provide interpretive commentary on the Ice Age, Native Americans and fossil mammals.
