State Fish
State Bird
The Common Loons was adopted as the official state bird symbol of Minnesota in 1961. Loons are known for their cries, wails, and yodels - their eerie, echoing calls are a distinctive feature of Minnesota’s northern lakes.




More About Common Loons
Loons are large
black
and white birds with
red
eyes. They have wingspans up to five feet and body lengths up to three feet. Although clumsy on land, they are high-speed flyers and excellent underwater swimmers (they will dive to depths of 90 feet in pursuit of fish). Approximately 12,000 of these unique birds make their summer homes in Minnesota.

Walleye
Walleyes grow to about 80 cm (31 in) in length, and weigh up to about 9 kg (20 lb). The maximum recorded size for the fish is 107 cm (42 in) in length and 11.3 kilograms (25 lb) in weight.
Common Loon
It usually ranges from 20–35 m (66–115 ft) in height and 1 m (3 ft 3 in) in trunk diameter, exceptionally reaching 43 m (141 ft) tall.[3] The crown is conical, becoming a narrow rounded dome with age. The bark is thick and gray-brown at the base of the tree, but thin, flaky and bright orange-red in the upper crown; the tree's name derives from this distinctive character. Some red color may be seen in the fissures of the bark.
State Flower
The
Pink
lady slipper was designated the offiacial state flower of Minnesota in1902 Lady slippers can live up to 50 years but develop slowly, taking up to 16 years to produce thier first flower. Since 1925 this rare wildflower has been protected by minnesota state law ( it is illegal to pick the flower or to uproot or unearth the plants).

State Rock
Lake Superior
Agate
The Lake Superior Agate was selected because the Agate reflects many aspects of Minnesota. It was formed during lava eruptions that occurred in Minnesota about a billion years ago. The stone's predominant red color comes from iron, a major Minnesota industrial mineral found extensively throughout the Iron Range region.
State Grain
Wild rice (also called Canada rice, Indian rice, and water oats) are four species of grasses. The plant grows in smaller lakes and slow flowing streams. Often only the head of the rice will rise above the water.
State Muffin
State Butterfly
The Monarch butterfly, also known as the milkweed butterfly, is one of the few that migrate north and south like birds do for winter. Approximately four generations of Monarchs are born in Minnesota each summer and live roughly four weeks; the exception is the last generation of the season which survives about six months.
Minnesota designated the
blue
berry muffin as the official state muffin in 1988. Wild
blue
berries are native to northeastern Minnesota, growing in bogs, on hillsides, and in cut-over forested areas.


State Animals
Striped Gopher
The thirteen-lined ground squirrel also known as the Striped Gopher,leoard ground squirrel, and squinney.
It is widely distributed over grasslands and prairies of North America.
Blue
berry Muffin
State Drink
Milk was designated as the official state drink of Minnesota in 1984. Minnesota produces 9.7 billion pounds of milk a year (6% of the nation’s total) and ranks sixth in dairy production among the states.
Motto
L'Étoile du Nord is French for "Star of the North". It was chosen by Henry Sibley, the state's first governor, shortly after the Minnesota territory became a state in 1858. Sibley selected it as a reflection of Minnesota's location so far north in the US.
Birds
Cardinals
Male Cardinal
Female Cardinal
The cardinal is the only
red
bird in eastern North America with a crest on top of his or her head, which rises when the bird senses danger. Cardinals are not migratory and stay in the same area year-round. They form winter flocks with up to 60-70 birds.
Blue Jay
The
Blue Jay
is a passerine bird in the family Corvidae, native to North America. It is resident through most of eastern and central United States and southern Canada, although western populations may be migratory.
Common Loon
The Common Loons was adopted as the official state bird symbol of Minnesota in 1961. Loons are known for their cries, wails, and yodels - their eerie, echoing calls are a distinctive feature of Minnesota’s northern lakes.




Barn Owl
Mourning Dove
The Barn Owl is the most widely distributed species of owl, and one of the most widespread of all birds. It is also referred to as Common Barn Owl, to distinguish it from other species in the barn owl family Tytonidae.
The Mourning Dove is a member of the dove family. The bird is also called the Turtle Dove or the American Mourning Dove or Rain Dove, and formerly was known as the Carolina Pigeon or Carolina Turtledove.

The northern pike is an elongated fish.A dorsal region that is
bluish-green
to
gray
in color distinguishes Northern pike from other members of the pike family (chain pickerel, redfin pickerel, and muskellunge).
Their sides having irregular rows of

The walleye is sometimes called the yellow walleye to distinguish it from the
blue
walleye, which is a subspecies that can be found in the southern Ontario and Quebec regions.
Sunfish
Pumpkinseed sunfish are the most colorful of the sunfish family and are easily distinguished by a
bright red
spot in a halfmoon shape on the rear edge of the opercle flap. Additionally, the pumpkinseed has several narrow wavy stripes, alternating
orange
-
brown
or
light blue
, on the sides of their head.
Carp
Common carp are one of the most damaging aquatic invasive species due to its wide distribution and severe impacts in shallow lakes and wetlands.

Red Fox
The
red fox
has
orangish-red
fur on its back, sides and head. It has white fur under its neck and on its chest.

Casey's Amusement Park
One of the forests I will be telling you is Huntersville State Forest.
Huntersville State Forest encompasses 33,963 acres. DNR Forestry administers 14,172 acres. The rest of the land is private. Before European settlers occupied the Crow Wing River area, Dakota and Ojibwe Indians lived there. In the early 1700s, French fur traders entered the Crow Wing River region and controlled the fur business until British and Canadian traders came to dominate the trade in the 1760s.

Alexandria History
The Douglas County area was first settled in 1858, the same year that Minnesota became a state. In 1862, the settlements were all but abandoned due to Sioux Indian uprisings in the area and all records made were lost. It was many months later before settlers began again moving back to the region.

LOGGING
The history of logging in the United States began on the East Coast. During the 17th and 18th centuries the state of Maine dominated the American lumber industry. More than 200 years of logging, however, took its toll on the landscape of the Eastern forests and the lumberjacks were forced westward in search of new timber. By the 1830s, the industry reached the Upper Great Lakes region, and for the next 100 years Minnesota dominated American logging.
Between 1837 and 1937, over 67 billion board feet of lumber were harvested from Minnesota's forests. The years between 1890 and 1905 marked Minnesota's "
golden years
" of logging.
MINING
The Ojibwe called the hills Missabe, the "sleeping giant" - land that lay undisturbed for millennia until the demand for iron drew prospectors to the area in the 1800s. The three iron ranges they uncovered define one of Minnesota's most distinctive regions.
Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner.
