Bailey - California, Nevada, March 1891 - October 1891
About the Project
A spring in the desert changes it. The stark contrast is easy to notice when you see an island of green in a sea of sand, dirt and rock. However, the differences go much deeper. In 1891, chief naturalist Vernon Bailey of the United States Biological Survey was gathering details about this phenomenon onsite in Nevada and California. Please join us in transcribing his field notes to learn more about the ecosystems in these areas.
