Two Lindbergh school district students are receiving recognition for an academic achievement: they both got a perfect score on the ACT.
Senior Ben Ledeaux and freshman Roo-nak Bera aced the test--a feat accomplished by less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT nationwide. The Lindbergh School District says both students are in Lindbergh’s PEGS program, Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Botanical Garden has completed a 26-year effort to document the state's extensive plant life.
The flora encyclopedia fills almost 1,400 pages and lists nearly 3,000 plants. It's the third volume in a series started 50 years ago by the St. Louis research center.
Each plant species is described in great detail. There are notes on taxonomy, distribution, plant uses and conservation issues. The state Department of Conservation collaborated on the project.
