UNION, Ky. – Join the park naturalist for a full weekend of prehistoric-based survival training at Big Bone Lick State Historic Site for our 2013 Lick the Wild: Survival Skills Weekend.


Taught from a “no modern tools” perspective, these classes are designed to teach you how to cope with various difficulties when in survival situations. Registration is required and is limited to a first-come, first-served basis until all spots are full. Email or call 859-384-3522 for more information. Fees are $90 per person. Two nights of camping in the naturalist programming area is included with the fee.


The 512-acre park features a bison herd, a campground, a museum and gift shop, and a lake for bank fishing. The park is located 22 miles southwest of Covington on KY 338.
