Bailey - California, Oregon, Utah, Washington, May - July 1897

About the Project

When exploring the west coast of North America, what scenery comes to mind? Lava beds, maybe? In the spring of 1897, chief field naturalist Vernon Bailey of the United States Biological Survey was working his way through Utah and the states on the west coast, documenting the biodiversity he found. His journal includes daily details of his activities and interactions with local tribes, observations of the terrain (including lava beds), vegetation and animals. Join our volunteers and discover what caught Bailey's attention as he worked his way from the Great Salt Lake to the Columbia River Valley, also known as the Rocky Mountain Trench.
