Celebrate all things Machair! 2013 is the last year of the Machair LIFE+ project and this event is part of a celebratory Machair Fest, to look back at the work of the project and the communities involved and to explore what the future holds for this valuable habitat.

The one-day conference will review the work of the Machair LIFE+ project and discuss future policy and support for the machair.
