The staff of Grand Portage National Monument prepare a newsletter available to visitors every year. We have included newsletters for this year and the previous year. These newsletters have elements which are included every year but to which new articles are added. You can view Grand Portage Guides from 2009 through 2005 on the park newsletter archive link above.
