All back issues of Shawnee Trails are available online, unless stated otherwise indicated, in Adobe Acrobat format. In addition to being available from this site, back issues may be downloaded from the national Sierra Club website: http://lists.sierraclub.org/archives/il-shawnee-trails.html. One caveat about all older back issues: as time passes, the hyperlinks to many web resources may no longer exist, especially those on external websites.

Members are encouraged to use the web link above to also subscribe to the automatically e-mailed version of the newsletter. Unlike the paper version, the e-mail version is always delivered up to five days before the paper version ever arrives in your home mailbox. In addition, it is in full color and occasionally has extra content, photos and more. Save paper and trees. Subscribe online today. All you need is your name and member number printed on the label of your paper newsletter. Don't know your number? E-mail bob.pauls@sierraclub.org  and the number will be sent to your e-mail address. Non-members can use the same method, but will be manually confirmed by the newsletter staff, so there may be some delay.
