EARTH DAY: The 47th year

Earth Day is Saturday, April 22. Among those who attended the first Earth Day celebration in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park back in 1970 was Unionville's own Ian McHarg, the internationally known landscape designer and land-use planner.
Ed Muskie, then a U.S. Senator from Maine and later U.S. Secretary of State under Jimmy Carter, was the keynote speaker at the Philadelphia event, and Ralph Nader and Allen Ginsberg were also there.
