2011 JAM Logo
The 2011 JAM Logo was conceptualized by Janet Coombes and is based on the yin-yang symbol which reflects the intertwined duality of all things in nature. Photographs kindly provided by Jim des Rivières (IO moth), Calvin Cutler (honeybees) and Ed Kettela (spruce budworm defoliation) were used by Rick West to create the logo.

Jim des Rivières' stunning photos of moths in the Ottawa Valley area were on display at the Canadian Museum of Nature for several months and a 3-year travelling exhibition is planned. A visit to moths.ca is a must!
