If you want to understand how plants found their way on earth, you won’t want to miss this fascinating gem of a film created by Australian scientists and photographers. The film is a journey into the mysterious world of fungi. Witness their beauty (the time-lapse photography will amaze you), unravel their mysteries and discover how this secret kingdom is essential to life on Earth and may, in fact, hold the key to our future. Jim Bray, a Preserve naturalist, will moderate this must-see presentation.

Jim Bray has lived in Bucks County for more than 60 years. After retiring from his labor relations career with U.S. Steel, Bray pursued his passion for gardening and conservation. A certified master gardener, he is the past chairman of the Lower Makefield Township Environmental Council. Under his chairmanship, the township received several national and state awards, among them the 2008 Achievement Award from the U.S. EPA—the only community so honored in the Mid-Atlantic region—as well as the 2009 Pennsylvania Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence.
