Synopsis: Learn more about our celebrations and our annual awards dinner.

Each year, Orange Environment selects both individuals and groups from grassroots organizations, the media, government, agriculture and private enterprise, that exemplify ecological stewardship—whose programs and plans work to ensure that Orange County remains a coveted place to live and work—now and in the future. The “OE” awards are given at our annual awards dinner.

The categories are consistent year to year with the occasional add-on as where appropriate.
