An intimate group of supporters came together at the Cincinnati Museum Center’s Geier Center Thursday for the annual Friends of Big Bone dinner.

Big Bone Lick State Historic Site in southern Boone County is the birthplace of American vertebrate paleontology and has been designated as a National Natural Landmark.

Pat Fox, president of Friends of Big Bone, said the dinner provides an opportunity to tell the story of Big Bone Lick and of its historical significance.

“We always invite a variety of people who have expressed an interest in Big Bone or who need to know the story” Fox said.

“Once you educate people about the significance of Big Bone, then it’s easier for them to participate in projects such as the upgrading of the Visitor Center, which is our goal this year.”

Friends of Big Bone (FOBB) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote, preserve, research, and memorialize the legacy of the Big Bone Lick Valley.
