Ecology & Conservation

As many of you know, I live a not so secret double life as an ecologist and conservation practitioner, and have been doing so since I was a teen.  In fact, I don’t think it would be too much of a stretch to say that I’ve devoted most of my life to trying to ensure a healthy world for the generations of humans and non-humans who will inherit our little planet.

I was recently greatly honoured to be awarded the 2013 Steve Hounsell Greenway Award by Ontario Nature.   The award “recognizes an individual, organization, or group that contributes to the what’s known as the Greenway vision – a connected landscape of key natural areas in southern Ontario linked together through natural passageways,” according to the Stratford Gazette:

"Jarmo Jalava writes songs rich in whimsy and wonder. There is a recognizable sound here-think of Bruce Cockburn's crisp melodicism and Daniel Lanois's low-burn intensity-but there is also a fresh voice.

Jalava has edge and intelligence, heart and soul. His music stays with you."

Charles Foran, music reviewer for the National Post
