Designed by Canadian nature artist Aleta Karstad and manufactured by The Playing Card Factory of Mississauga, Ontario, NatureMatch is PROUDLY CANADIAN!
Winner of the Canadian Nature Federation's ROBERT BATEMAN AWARD, Aleta Karstad has selected 36 of her favourite wildlife portraits in watercolour to share her fascination with nature's enchanting diversity.
Challenge your memory by matching pairs of birds, mammals, fish, insects, and shells. A learning experience for all ages as the NatureMatch booklet explains what is special about each creature.
They met by chance in the Edmonton airport in March, 2019. Aleta showed Natasha Prosser the paintings on her phone, and inspired Natasha’s idea of a matching game that would share Aleta’s art with everyone!
"You will find snapshots of my life in these cards - and be able to meet some of the creatures I've painted in our travels - all part of a bigger story that's depicted in my illustrated nature journals."
Fred Schueler and Aleta Karstad have been inseparable as an Artist-Biologist team since 1973, winning the World Wildlife Fund Canada GLEN DAVIS CONSERVATION LEADERSHIP PRIZE in May of 2020.
