Beginning Thursday, April 19, Southern Utah University will celebrate our ultimate Big Mamma with events ranging from an art exhibition showcasing the Dixie National Forest to a screening of a documentary about a Big Daddy of tree hugging.

The highlight of the Earth Day festivities is "Into the Woods: A Painted Diary of Dixie National Forest" by Arlene Braithwaite, who was commissioned by the Forest Service to depict four breathtaking landscapes within the forest.
