The Sierran

The Hoosier Chapter's award-winning newsletter, the Indiana Sierran, is accepting advertising. The Sierran is mailed to all members and other interested Hoosiers.

The print run for the most recent edition was 6,883, most of which (6,333) were mailed to current members. Most of the remaining newsletters were available for distribution at public events and facilities. In addition, a digital (PDF) version of the newsletter is a posted online.

Our readers are Hoosiers with a commitment to and concern for the environment. Ads concerning products, appropriate services, and outdoor events & opportunities could be well-targeted to this audience.


Available ad sizes are:

Half-page: 5 1/2" wide x 5" ($425)

Quarter-page: 2 3/4" x 5" ($225)

Eighth-page: 2 3/4" x 2 1/2" ($125)

We prefer that ad copy be camera-ready.


Deadline information:

For schedule & deadline information, contact the chapter office (see below).


Additional information:

Our newsletter is printed in one color (see sample).

Payment is expected upon acceptance of ad copy.

A discount for running the same ad in multiple editions may be possible.



In addition to the Sierran (print newsletter), we also communicate with our members and friends through periodic email newsletters. These too provide excellent and inexpensive advertising opportunities. Tiles and banners are available which can click-through to your web site or email address. Samples are available upon request.

Our e-newsletter is typically emailed to about 9,000 email addresses.

A tile ad is 125 pixels wide, and 125px vertical (some flexibility on the latter). The cost is $75.
