Earthlinks: Ecology In Transit


Keep your eyes peeled for new ecology cards on Bi-State buses in St. Louis!!!! Students from schools in St. Louis are preparing informative cards about the ecology and natural history of the region's trees. These cards will provide cues for identification of the trees, maps showing where they can be found in Missouri and Illinois, and reasons why children believe these trees are important to us.

The students' original artwork will also be displayed at a variety of locations around the St. Louis region, including the Missouri Botanical Garden and UM-St. Louis. Stay tuned for further information about these displays.
