The Orange County Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (OC-CNPS) is a non-profit organization of volunteers devoted to the conservation of California’s native plants and their natural habitats, and to increasing the understanding, appreciation, and horticultural use of our native plants.

The Orange County CNPS chapter established the Charlie O’Neill Grant in 1993 to honor the late Charlie O’Neill, OC-CNPS President from 1990-1992 and a highly inspirational member of the chapter. This grant is awarded to graduate students for field research related to southern California native plants.
