Can you name your state bird, flower, and tree?
It’s less widely known that many states have also designated other natural resources to honor. Some states have animals (some list both a wild and domestic animal), insects, fish, minerals, gems, grass, fruit, nuts, mushrooms, and even soil and fossils.
Here are some of Wisconsin’s selections:
- State Bird: Robin
- State Wildlife Animal: White-tailed deer
- State Tree: Sugar Maple
- State Flower: Wood Violet
- State Fish: Muskellunge
- State Animal: Badger
- State Insect: Honey Bee
- State Rock: Granite
- State Mineral: Galena
- State Domesticated Animal: Cow (what else, right?)
- State Beverage: Milk (what else, right?)
