US OBOD MEMBERS

Total OBOD Membership (2015)

As of 2015 there were approximately 17,000 OBOD members worldwide, of which 7,770 (or 46%) were in the United States.

By 2021 total world membership has grown to “over 25,000 members“, which means there are likely over 11,000 OBOD members in the US now.*

*Note: membership numbers are approximate  – “that is over almost thirty years, so some will have died, resigned, or simply moved on in their interests“.

US Members by Grade (2015)

(Per Druid Magazine, Summer 2015.) Based on these trends, as of 2021 there could be 45-60 Druid Grade graduates in the US.

Most OBOD members are solitary, especially here given the large distances involved. 

Even so, as of August 2021 there are 94 known US groves or seed groups listed on the internet –  or about 40% of all listed OBOD groups internationally.
