Othello Crane Festival

March 24-March 26
Othello, WA United States + Google Map

The thousands of Sandhill Cranes that congregate in Othello in the early spring are heart-stirring, yet there is much more at this annual, well-organized festival to see, do, and learn. The festival helps you explore the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge and Potholes Reservoir region, very different ecosystems from Western Washington, full of flora, fauna, and birds which we seldom see on our side of the Cascades. The town of Othello opens its doors and hearts to visitors during the festival. For more information, see www.othellosandhillcranefestival.org.
