Druid Groups Map

This is a map of public Druid groves and study groups in North America. I started researching groups while traveling the continent, and decided to share this others. The map started in April 2014 with 150 groups, which has now grown to:

Note: the map is best viewed on a larger screen.

Disclaimer: There is no implied endorsement of groups on this map. Carefully evaluate & investigate any group.

Recent Changes – Several factors have resulted in fewer Druid groups out on the internet, and on this map. One was the demise of Witchvox at the end of 2019, and the removal of that website’s listings. Others are due to shakeups in orders, and normal fluctuations.  This has resulted in a decrease from approximately 315 groups in early 2019.

Map Questions

Who says these are Druids?
The people in the groups, and/or Druid organizations say they are Druids – not me. Other than role or video game players, if a group self-identifies as Druid they can be on this map. (See the other tabs for more information on how to get a listing.)
Do these people meet in the flesh?
Yes- this map only shows Druid groups that meet in person – ‘cyber’ or virtual communities, or individual websites are not included. It is the intent of this map to inform people of groves, etc that are gathering together locally on a regular basis to practice their path.
Are these groups public?
This map is compiled from public online sources on organization and individual websites. Listed groups must have a valid public link hosted elsewhere on the Internet to be included on the map. (This way they haves already come forward and dealt with their own privacy issues.)

Not every gathering of Druids (or order) is public, so there will be many private groups that are not on this map. Most orders provide information on their groups, but there also are some who do not. Private or clearly inactive groups are not shown on the map.

Ask about meeting requirements – just because a group has information available on the internet doesn’t necessarily mean you can immediately come to business meetings, a festival, or ritual. Just as you will evaluate these folks, most will also want to learn about you.

Why just North America?
There wasn’t a current, interactive and searchable map for North America Druid groups. (Though Mike at RDNA has kept some good maps over the years.)  As to North America- it is my continent, and I had to limit the project somehow. As it is, I am stretching my limited Spanish and French.

If people want to research and send me information on groups in Greenland (while included in the North American continent, it is part of the Kingdom of Denmark) or in South America, let me know and we can talk about expanding the map. You would need to contact me in English, and check for new listings a few times a year, like I do now.

Why does a listing say it is 'self-reported' for an order?
Some groups on the map are listed as ‘self-reported’ for an order. This is my method of disclosing that either the Druid order does not publish a list of their groups, or that the group in question is not on the Order’s list (which can easily happen if they are new, for instance).

I do my best to use the public information that both orders and groups provide, and I don’t want to mislead anyone about an individual group’s affiliation. (And I have had one instance where the order in question appreciated the ‘self-reported’ comment.)

Are locations exact?
Listing locations are very general (mostly at the town level). All markers are placed on a park or other common area, even for those that publicize their street address elsewhere. Check with a listing’s contact to get more information.
What groups are not on this map?
Groups that are not on this map include

Druid distance or in-house training programs (unless associated with a local grove or study group that meets in-person, and regularly for activities outside of their educational program).

Gaming or role-play groups.

Cyber or internet-only gatherings.

Private groups (includes groups that are not already on the internet).

People outside of North America.

Inactive listings.

Pan-pagan groups that follow some other tradition as their primary path. This includes ‘ecumenical’, Pagan Pride, or festival groups.

Malicious webpages, such as attack sites.

New groups, or those I have not found yet.

Individuals.

How do we get on the map?
I search order lists and the internet several times a year to keep the map up to date. You can also contact me to add a public online, meeting in-person, Druid group in North America. (Also for any corrections or revisions.)

Just let me know the:

  • Group name
  • Town, state, and country
  • Internet link with contact info (order webpage, Facebook, Witchvox, Yahoo Group, website, etc. listing)
  • Affiliation (if any)
