WATCHABLE WILDLIFE — The 2011 Othello Sandhill Crane Festival has been canceled.
Organizers told The Columbia Basin Herald there weren't enough volunteers for the event, which usually has been held in March for the past 13 years.
The festival celebrated the arrival of the migrating birds at the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge. It soared in popularity a few years ago, attracting expert speakers and filling tour buses with wildlife watchers
Organizers are looking for volunteers to bring the Othello Sandhill Crane Festival back in 2012
