The Toodyay Friends of the River Inc. (TFOR) received the 'River Rats - Living Streams Award' at the 2009 State Landcare Awards, joining a distinguished group of individuals with a river-care ethos. Not one to spend time chasing awards, the TFOR are busy working for the environment, particularly that of the Avon River. However the River Rats Award was well-earned, and recognised the on-ground activity that the TFOR are renowned for.

TFOR provided considerable support for the Toodyay Tidy Towns Committee (TTTC) in their quest for the coveted Keep Australia Beautiful awards in the 2014 Tidy Towns - Sustainable Communities Awards. Toodyay was the overall State winner, and then went on to win the National Title in Tasmania early 2015.Well done Toodyay!
