In 1903, the California poppy became the state's official flower. Every year, California schools celebrate California Poppy Day on April 6th, a holiday established in 2010. On this day, schools and conservation organizations teach the value of native plants and why it is important to respect California's natural resources. The California quail became the official state bird much later in 1931. The California quail is a highly adaptable bird and very hardy, especially in its native drought prone climate.
