Bailey - Field notes, Grand Canyon, Arizona, Pennsylvania, New York, and Kentucky - 1939

About the Project

If we saw fresh lion tracks on our trip to the Grand Canyon, you had better believe we would be running the other direction. But not naturalist Vernon Orlando Bailey. No, he was an adventurer. We are mere archivists. During a 1939 trip to the Grand Canyon, Bailey and his colleague spent the better part of a month laying lion and coyote traps, often baiting them with beef or mutton scraps. Sometimes they would be on the move for thirteen hours at a time. Join Bailey, and a passionate group of volunpeers, on a trip to the Grand Canyon…safe at your computers and away from those lions.
