EVERETT, Wash. – Some Everett-area families are slowly losing their backyards by living in areas at risk of landslides.

On Saturday, the city held a workshop to educate them about proper drainage and planting vegetation to stabilize soil.

Some of the people who attended said they’re concerned passing trains could further destabilize surrounding hillsides.

The event was planned a year ago, but organizers acknowledge that the Oso mudslide probably helped generate a better turnout.
