Tom Brokaw emcees the National Audubon Society Gala Dinner tonight, during which high-flying socialites flock to the Plaza Hotel for a night of dining, dancing and not a little peacocking.

The Audubon Society will present its highest award, the Audubon Medal, to Louis Moore Bacon, founder and CEO of Moore Capital Management LP, who has been supporting the conservationist movement for two decades with his Moore Charitable Foundation. The Inaugural Dan W. Lufkin Prize for Environmental Leadership will be presented to George Archibald, the founder and leader of the International Crane Foundation (IFC). And then it’s time to ruffle some feathers!

Plaza Hotel, 768 Fifth Avenue at 59th Street, 6:30-9:30pm. For more information, call (212) 979-3197 or visit http://www.audubon.org.
