Welcome to Oregon beaver state

Oregon was mapped by Louis and Clark, that's how they became part of the United States. It was established to the state on February 14, 1859 which is Valentines Day.
Oregon's state nut is the hazelnut, and actually it is the only state with a state nut. Oregon grows 99 percent of the hazelnuts in the United States. The next hazelnut you eat could possibly by from Oregon.
Oregon's state animal is the American Beaver because the animal was over trapped by early settlers. Oregon's state bird is the Western Meadowlark. Lastly, the state flower is the Oregon Grape.

During World War 2, Oregon produced aluminum and built ships for the war.

One of Oregon's landmarks is Crater Lake, which is the deepest lake in the United States. It's depth is 1,949. It is so deep because it was an ancient volcano.
Neither summer or winter in Oregon is very harsh. That means that the winter is not super cold and the summer is not super hot.

The state is 11,239 ft. above sea level.

The state earns more money from making wood products then any other industry.

A famous person here was Beverly Cleary.
