Donations flying in for festival

Donations are "flying" in this year to support the 16th annual Othello Sandhill Crane Festival the first weekend in April.
The community festival celebrating the spring migration of sandhill cranes has always enjoyed broad-based support from businesses, individuals and government agencies. To date, the festival has already received more than $4,000 in donations.
Another important "donation" the Festival receives each year is the hundreds of hours needed to coordinate and host the event, as well as the hours of free lectures donated by geologists, biologists, ornithologists and botanists from all over the Northwest. Local farmers and other subject experts also contribute their time at the festival to answer questions about native wildlife and agriculture and the way they coexist in the Basin.
Many different types of tours are planned for the three-day event, including boat tours, bus trips to view cranes and other wildlife and tours showcasing local geology and plant life.
Donations help fund public relations, as well as defray speaker expenses. If you or your business are interested in donating to this non-profit event, please contact Marie Lotz at the Grant Conservation District, 488-2802.
The Festival Committee will soon mail a brochure that outlines the dozens of activities planned for April 5, 6 and 7. Keep watching the website ( and the festival's Facebook page for updates.
