"We hope everyone who loves trees will come to this event to honor Chris," said Outdoor Circle President Jo Best. "She played a huge part in keeping Hawaii clean, green and beautiful."
Snyder, of Kailua, was aboard United Flight 93 which crashed in Pennsylvania. She was returning home from a national urban forestry conference.
The Nov. 10 Magic Island event, which Snyder helped plan, involves the planting of 70 trees on the Ewa side. Arborists, landscape architects, city employees, students, the Outdoor Circle and other volunteers are expected to take part.
The Outdoor Circle also has established the Christine Snyder Tree Education Fund, which will be used to establish island-wide programs for teaching the proper planting, maintenance and pruning of trees. To contribute, call the Circle at 593-0300.
