The order has only one class; Dame/Knight. Members of the order may wear the medal of the order, worn from a brown drape ribbon.

The order was conceived as a way to recognize excellence in conservation work by then Baron Gilbert. Fifteen pieces of regalia were acquired. Since this initial run was exhausted, no further awards of the order have been bestowed, despite it still being considered active.

On 30 June 2020, Reina Celestina declared her intent to reimagine the honor as the Order of the Redwood Throne, making it the highest honor in Cordova. This has yet to occur, but the process of designing and redesigning regalia for the order is under way.

Sovereign of the Order

The current Sovereign and font of honor for the order is Reina Celestina, as the reigning monarch of Cordova. While her current rank of Dame officially is equal in precedence with others who hold that rank, her status as Member Ex-Officio gives her functional precedence within the order.
