Forty years ago, throngs of flower children frolicked in Fairmount Park, playing kazoos and tossing streamers.
Ira Einhorn, the city's self-styled hippie guru who later gained notoriety for murdering his girlfriend, hogged the stage, and poet Allen Ginsberg chanted, "Merrily, merrily, we welcome, we welcome the end of the earth."
The first Earth Day was a party, a polemic, a protest.
This year, Earth Day has no regional signature event.

Bensalem has received a $60,000 grant to design a bike and pedestrian trail, which could someday connect with paths up and down the East Coast.
Funding from the Delaware Valley Planning Commission will help engineer a trail running along State Road, said Spencer Finch of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council.
Companies across the Philadelphia metropolitan area are making a public promise to change their daily business practices to reduce impacts on the environment. The Green Business Program's commitment focuses on a checklist of green operational practices designed for office users. Once a key company leader has signed the commitment, the company will be ranked as Basic, Silver, and Gold based on the number of green practices it has adopted.
The Greater Philadelphia Green Business Program was made for businesses, created by business leaders and overseen by an organizing committee. The Pennsylvania Environmental Council and the PenJerDel Council endorse it. The Green Business Program and website are maintained by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council.
