North Star Journal

The North Star Journal is the printed newsletter of the North Star Chapter of the Sierra Club. Paper copies are mailed to all of our members twice a year.


Back issues of the journal are available as PDF documents. You can read them using Adobe’s Acrobat Reader. If you do not have the Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, you can download it for free from Adobe.

NOTE: Most of these pdf files are quite large, and may take a while to download, especially if you are on a dial-up connection.
