Christine Ann Snyder, 32 was a native of Kailua, Hawaii. She was a Project Manager and a certified Arborist for The Outdoor Circle, Hawaii’s oldest nonprofit environmental group. Her family has said that the beautification of Hawaii was her profession, pride, and joy. She helped volunteers plant trees and protect them and landscapes from development. On September 11, 2001 she was returning from the National Urban Forestry Conference in Washington, D.C. (an impromptu visit to New York City). But she never made it home.
I would have loved Christine. She sounds like a very fun and passionate person. She was an active member of a nonprofit organization and was committed to the environment. People like her is what we need more of. I have blogged about climate change before and it is people like Christine who make differences in protecting our planet. I hope that you, reader, will realize that she was a great person and to follow what she did in remembrance of her life.
