King County and Seattle Public Utilities are offering two free workshops for people who would like an environmentally friendly yard.

Participants can attend a workshop on Dec. 5 or Dec. 6 to learn how to design a low-maintenance eco-friendly yard and how to incorporate more native plants, fight weeds and attract wildlife.

On Dec. 9, the county will host a native-plant salvage for workshop attendees at a site slated for development, where participants may take native plants for their own yards.

The first workshop is 6:30-9 p.m. Dec. 5 at Viewlands Elementary School, 10525 Third Ave. N.W., Seattle. The second workshop is 6:30-9 p.m. Dec. 6 at Lodge at Beaver Lake, 25101 S.E. 24th St., Sammamish.
