The United Ancient Order of Druids (UAOD) of California is a non-political non-denominational fraternal benefit society. The
California Druids were formed as a brotherhood united to assist the families of miners injured or killed in the gold fields
of the Sierra Nevada. It spread statewide and became a booming organization. Over 200 local Groves have been chartered over
the years and membership approached 15,000 in the early years of the 20th century. As with most fraternal organizations membership
has dwindled over the last half century. The ritual and ceremonies were based loosely on ancient Druidic myths.
