MOUNT OLIVET, Ky. (AP) - Visitors to Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park in northern Kentucky this weekend can learn about ancient fossils.

The park is hosting a workshop on “Fossils of Kentucky” at 3 p.m. EDT Saturday at Pioneer Museum. The class is free, and admission to the museum is also free during the program.

Paleontologist and interpretive naturalist Alan Goldstein will lead the class. Goldstein has worked at the Falls of the Ohio State Park in Clarksville, Indiana, near Louisville since 1993 and has more than 50 years of experience. The Kentucky Parks Department says Goldstein can help participants identify rocks and fossils in their collections, and they are encouraged to bring items from their collections to the class.

Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park is about 45 miles northeast of Lexington off U.S. 68 in Robertson County.
