We have canceled our guided member outings and most other events, and closed our office to the public, until April 30 at least. But we still want to connect with you, even if not in person. So we’ve decided to create a series of short videos, made by various staff members, called “Just a Minute from the Islands” as a way of reaching out and promoting connections with nature and SJPT-protected properties.

We shot the first one on March 19, the Spring Equinox—four days before the “Stay Home” order confined us all to our homes and neighborhoods, where we’re doing our best to find more “Just a Minute” subjects.

Let us know what you think of these video vignettes, tell us your ideas for new ones, and send us your own minute-long masterpieces. Just shoot an email to Craig or Sierra, or comment on Facebook or Instagram.
