The CPC Star Award honors those who demonstrate the concern, cooperation, and personal investment needed to conserve our imperiled native plants.

Each year, CPC staff reviews nominees’ contributions they have made over the course of their career to the science and conservation of rare and endangered plants in North America. Such contributions may include: ground breaking scientific discoveries in plant cultivation; extraordinary work in reintroduction of plants; heroic efforts that saved a specific species; exceptionally creative activities resulting in increased community support for plant conservation; and their contributions towards advancing CPC’s mission.

Congrats to the 2021 Star Award Recipient, Dr. Naomi Fraga!
