On sunday 21 May, LIFE+ FLANDRE  celebrates the 25th anniversary of LIFE and NATURA 2000 by organizing a  guided walk through the cross border coastal dune site 'De Westhoek - Dune du Perroquet', so emphasizing the transnational cooperation between the French and Belgian partners. Start at 9:30 AM at the parking lot of  Café 'Le Perroquet', at De Panne, Duinhoekstraat 174, just next to the Belgian-French state border. This visit will be guided in 2 languages (Dutch and French) by management-expert Marc Leten (Agency Nature and Forests of the Flemish Authority) and coastal warden Aline Bue (Département du Nord) and will be focused on the breathtaking dune landscape and the nature restoration works that were executed in the frame of the LIFE projects ICCI (1997-2001) and FLANDRE (2013-2020).
