On this day in Philly history in 1970, the first Earth Day celebration was held in Philadelphia. Organized by a 33-member committee, Philadelphia’s Earth Day was widely viewed to be the most successful event of its kind in the country. Held at Fairmount Park, the event hosted a stacked lineup of cultural and political icons: Senator Edmund Muskie, Ralph Nader, Nobel prize-winning biochemist George... Wald, philosopher Alan Watts, and poet Allen Ginsberg. There were musical performances, too, from the cast of “Hair” and the rock ‘n’ roll band Redbone. Earth Day was just one facet of “Earth Week,” which was organized in late 1969 by a group of graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning students. Inspired by a speech from U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson that called for a nationwide “environmental teach-in,” word of the Penn students’ plans quickly spread, and attracted the attention of politicians and activists across the country. This first Earth Day counted participants in 2,000 universities, 10,000 primary and secondary schools –nearly 20 million Americans in total. Earth Day is now observed in 192 countries.


   

 
I forgot the Philly connection, but remember it now.  I was a senior in hs in Philly then.  It was indeed a beautiful day as the picture shows.  We were let out early that day to mark the occasion.  44 years ago, wow !
