Othello Crane Festival
March 22-March 24
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 full information, see www.othellosandhillcranefestival.org.
