In these times of increasing electronic information and recreation, people of all ages need to get offline to enjoy the tactile experience of a hands-on game once in a while - maybe even often!
NatureMatch, with its simple challenges of spatial memory and shape recognition, is not really that simple. You will be surprised in all kinds of ways!
For one thing, young and old enjoy playing together - each person is challenged at their own level. For another, it's educational! The NatureMatch Handbook has a wealth of interesting facts to look up about each creature that's revealed when it's your turn to flip a tile - so keep that little booklet close at hand! Aleta's biologist husband Fred Schueler put a lot of thought into sharing little-known facts as well as his and Aleta's personal experience, in each of the 36 species descriptions.
The NatureMatch game works like most other matching games - it's CLASSIC !
Every day we lose species from the world. Many people will never get to see some of the creatures that may still be plentiful now, but have already been made vulnerable by climate change or human impact. Aleta's detailed art allows you to see them up close and personal. Their descriptions in the accompanying booklet turns you into "the expert", as you share your favourites with others. Aleta Karstad's 50 year award-winning legacy of writing and painting in nature has captured the biodiversity of Canada, and NatureMatch helps to expand this legacy to all Canadians - something we can be proud to share!
