Bailey - Arizona, California, Mexico, New Mexico, Texas, July - October 1908
About the Project
Have you ever started a project and nothing seems to be where it belongs? Shortly after arriving in Albuquerque, New Mexico, naturalist Vernon Orlando Bailey rode across the Rio Grande river and could find no trace of life to indicate the Lower Sonoran. As a person whose career was surveying biological life across North America, these observations raised questions instead of dashing his spirits. Join our volunpeers in transcribing Bailey's 1908 field book to see what he makes of his findings and the clues they provide.
