Important notes!

Some of our scavenger hunt items are on private property and will be identified as such on the page for the item. They are all visible from the street, so there's no need to venture onto the property :)

This scavenger hunt will use about 30 Megabytes of data. If you would like to download the website to use on your phone, you will need to download an archive file, uncompress it and save it to your phone. Please contact Lisa Coady for instructions.
