WALLABYS UNITE: Hollywood long ago recognized Robert Redford as one of its most gifted actors and filmmakers, but it was the Australian wallabies and American Bald Eagles that helped honor him as Conservationist of the Year. Notable for the scores of zoo animals present, the group celebrated his achievements along with those of seven other awardees. Actor-comedian Chevy Chase honored his wife Jayni and NWF President Larry Schweiger presented award to First Lady Michelle Oabama, Sen. Richard Lugar, naturalist Dave Mizejewski, Dr. Virginia Burkett and Grace Breitenbeck. After dinner, the 800 guests were asked to plant their dinner menu in a garden, as it was printed on recycled parchment full of seeds.
