Spend "Just a Minute" With the Preservation Trust

Explore nature in your own backyard with the San Juan Preservation Trust!

Learn about the plants and wildlife that call your backyard and local parks home. Join knowledgeable guides as they share the stories behind this beautiful earth. Whether or not you live in the San Juan Islands, you can get a vicarious dose of nature in the islands, served up in little bite-sized pieces, with these short videos. 

First up, learn about the madrone, or madrona tree. However you say it, 'Arbutus menziesii' is one of the coolest trees ever.

Next up - Miners Lettuce! Miners during the California Gold Rush staved off scurvy with this trailside treat. Enjoy the salad days of spring!

Check out the most charming little alligator (lizard) you ever did see—on a Preservation Trust preserve.
