Discussion of ordination, the Vinaya and monastic life. How and where to ordain? Bhikkhuni ordination etc.
I think we are all acquianted with the forestsangha.org site and the monasteries that are of this tradition in north america.
yet what about the other traditons such as Dhammayuttika Nikaya (Metta Forest Monastery in San Diego County belongs to this tradition). and other forest/meditation traditions.
Are there sites that list all of their locations within Canada, U.S., U.K. and associated western/european countries like forestsangha does?

is a beginning. The drop-down menu on the right side will provide worldwide results.
Utah seems complete, at least, for the States, which cannot be said for the Wikipedia listings.

"Others will misapprehend according to their individual views, hold on to them tenaciously and not easily discard them; we shall not misapprehend according to individual views nor hold on to them tenaciously, but shall discard them with ease — thus effacement can be done."- MN 8 - Sallekha Sutta
