Ballard Locks Tour Update
The YMF had the opportunity to tour the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks where we had the opportunity to tour the facility and learn about the history of one of the most active locks in the world.
A huge thank you to Dana and Nate with the Army Corps of Engineers for taking time out of their day to lead us on an unforgettable tour of the locks.

You can find more pictures of the event on the ASCE Seattle YMF Facebook group.
The Ballard Locks will be celebrating its centennial on July 4, 2017. For more information, please visit:
