In case you haven’t noticed, it’s spring.
It’s time to go outside, so the city of Everett, the Snohomish County WSU Extension and the Snohomish Conservation District teamed up to present a series of free workshops on taking care of your yard the natural way.
The first one, Natural Yard Care with Ciscoe Morris, is from 6 to 8 tonight at Everett Station, Weyerhaeuser Room, 3201 Smith Ave., Everett.
