For the Inland Empire
(Graphic originally from candleandcauldron.com)
This site serves a growing informal network/alliance of pagans in the Inland Empire region of Southern California, which includes the greater San Bernardino and Riverside areas. IEPN provides links to local neo-pagan groups, stores and merchants, and professionals who are known to be pagan-friendly. If you know of any such I can add, or have new URLs for site without links, and let me know. For stores, please only send info for those who have physical locations in the area.

Local elected officials Why an IE-specific site?
If you're looking for the Grove of the Sacred Well, it's no longer active. While I no longer consider myself primarily Keltrian, I keep the site up for archival purposes, and am always happy to meet others in the area interested in the druidic path. (The picbadge link is there because I still support Keltria even if I'm no longer a member.)
The ie-pagans list is a way for pagans in the Inland Empire to get in touch with each other and ask "Where can I find..." type questions. It's for anyone who considers themselves pagan (or pagan-friendly), any or no particular trad, solitary or in a group. It's been very low traffic, though polite discussions are welcome :-). If you try to subscribe and don't hear from me (or want to subscribe to the list without having to set up a yahoo account), ; yokel!groups doesn't always send me a notification :-(.

There are many sites that offer the exact times of solstices and equinoxes; one of my favorites is the US Naval Observatory's Earth's Seasons: Equinoxes, Solstices, Perihelion, and Aphelion 1992-2020.
- California Circles, Festivals, Workshops & Events on Witchvox

Again, I am only passing on information, not making recommendations.

- Rather than try to keep up with all the elected officials covering two very large counties, I refer you to the ACLU's Action Center. Here you can enter your ZIP code and find your elected representatives. With the NeoConservative "Tea Party" influence in Congress, we need to stay vigilant to ensure our rights aren't whittled away.
- Not local, but there are two shops on CafePress with merchandise to show you're a pagan voter: I am Pagan and I Vote! and Proud Pagan Voter. I'm not connected with these, they're just two I found on a search.
There are many places that have links for on-line stores, or contacts by state. As we Californians know, that isn't always a lot of help :-). Even Southern California specific lists often focus on the Los Angeles metroplex and San Diego. This site is meant to focus on the Inland Empire.
