Travel back 450 million years with the park naturalist staff for an exciting day of fossil hunting here at Big Bone Lick State Historic Site. Help find, clean and catalogue the various ordovician fossils found on the park. Once found any extraordinary fossils will be put on display in the visitor center. No fossils found on the park are allowed to be removed from the park. No registration required.

After the event a special fossil program will occur which enables anyone to dig out a real fossil and clean it from a pre made mold. The fossil will be identified and mounted on cedar wood display so participants can take the fossil home with them. Fee: $5.00
