With thunder, lightning, rain and snow all filling Cedar City's skies in the past 12 hours, SUU's Earth Day Celebration, slated for Thursday, April 22, has been moved indoors to the Sharwan Smith Student Center Ballroom. And though the activities and booths are now safely beyond Mother Nature's reach, the festivities promise to offer a wealth of information and activities to help the campus and local communities celebrate nature.

All of this year's Earth Day activities are free and open to the public.

The celebration will begin at 9 a.m., with a fair of educational and activity booths aimed at promoting green business practices, eco-friendly living and the use of environmentally-friendly products and services. The booths will be open until 7 p.m. Thursday evening.

Throughout the day, there will also be more targeted activities, including yoga from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and a screening of the Academy Award-winning documentary "The Cove," in the Sterling Church Auditorium, at 8 p.m.

A live band, "Too Much Fun," will also play in the Ballroom from 4-7 p.m.

With opportunities for education and fun for students of all ages, this year's Earth Day Celebration should bring out the green in everyone -- indoors or out.
