  • YMF Group Photo and Summer Happy Hour
    Thursday, September 14, 2017

    Please join us for the annual Philadelphia YMF group photo and happy hour at Fishtown Hops. Light appetizers will be provided, and a cash bar will be available for beverages.

    Event is open to all, but only those 21+ will be able to consume alcohol. Attendees under 21 must enter from the Riverwalk entrance.

    Please RSVP by Sunday, September 10, 2017. This event is free, but RSVP is highly encouraged as appetizers will be arranged based on attendance. See the flyer for additional details.
  • Wissahickon Devil's Pool Cleanup
    Saturday, September 16, 2017

    Please join the YMF for a cleanup of Devil's Pool in the Wissahickon Valley Park. We will be joining United by Blue, REI Conshohocken, and the Friends of the Wissahickon in celebration of International Coastal Cleanup day! This is a great way to get out and meet fellow engineers while giving back to our community! The Devil's Pool location is a popular weekend destination and only has a couple of trashcans that fill up quite quickly. The only way these get picked up are through the efforts of the Friends of the Wissahickon, and they need all the help they can get (especially shortly after the holiday weekend)!

    Snacks will be provided. We will all meet outside the snack bar for a group photo after the event. Please dress accordingly, including wearing sturdy shoes, as getting dirty and wet is a given.

    Please RSVP as soon as possible. The Philadelphia YMF has reserved 15 spots for the event, which are on a first come, first served basis. Once these fill up, you may register directly on the United by Blue website here (be sure to shoot us an email if you do sign up directly through their site); however, spots will not be guaranteed. See the flyer for additional details.
  • Adopt-A-Highway Fall Cleanup
    Sunday, October 29, 2017

    The ASCE Philadelphia YMF and the ASHE Delaware Valley YMC will be co-hosting the last of this year's Adopt-A-Highway Cleanups on October 29th. The event will again take place along our adopted two-mile segment of Bethlehem Pike (SR 2018), between Lafayette Avenue Connector and Butler Pike, in Ambler, PA. Everyone will meet up by 11AM in the parking lot of the Fireside Bar & Grill. After the cleanup, attendees are invited to gather together for refreshments and food in Fireside.

    Please RSVP by Friday, October 20, 2017. This event is FREE, but RSVP is important so we can coordinate safety vests and supplies for everyone. See the flyer for additional details.
