22nd Othello Sandhill Crane Festival
March 20 - March 22
For two decades we have celebrated the annual return of nearly 35,000 Sandhill Cranes to Othello, Washington, every March as they migrate north to their breeding grounds in Alaska. The festival offers an incredible opportunity to view the cranes up-close, with tours led by local experts. The festival also boasts other specialty tours of the flora, fauna, and geology of the area, and many lectures, as well as children’s activities. The festival has grown over the years with returning participants attending from across the country. Friday night activities to be announced, and Saturday and Sunday activities at the Othello High School, 340 Seventh Avenue, South. Contact Marie Lotz, 866-726-3445, firstname.lastname@example.org.
