We at TAET are honored to provide outdoor educational outings infused with Indigenous environmental teachings.Participants are provided with an opportunity to both share in cultural teachings and discover nature hands-on.
Our mission is to develop a relationship with Turtle Island (North America) and all her inhabitants by sharing traditional teachings through guided activities and tours.

Brenda's experience with her students along the Humber River:
" Both our tours were rich, informative and engaging. It was difficult to tear ourselves away and head back to school when the tours were done.
Alan was very generous with his time and expertise, and opened our eyes to many of the natural wonders in our community. We highly recommend his tours. Miigwetch (Thank You) "

DNTO with Sook-Yin Lee (CBC Radio) goes fishing with TAET:
" Sook-Yin joins avid fisherman Alan Colley of Toronto Aboriginal Eco Tours as he takes a bunch of kids fishing in Toronto's Eglinton Flats. You can hear the amazement as they reel in their first fish!
Having grown up in foster care, Alan Colley fondly remembers the time he spent fishing and out in nature as a kid. Now, he wants to foster that love of the outdoors to as many city kids as he can, by taking them out on guided tours to thenatural areas in Toronto. "

" Going on the Toronto Aboriginal Eco Tour with Alan Colley was an amazing learning experience... From this trip I was able to learn about the history of the river, its relationship with everything, and it made me think about how it can be applied to my everyday life."
