NEW MILFORD — Housatonic Habitat for Humanity’s first annual Scavenger Hunt around the town of New Milford is continuing through July 31.

Those who take part find clues, visit places, and win prizes — everything from a Joe’s Salon Beauty Basket to a summer of free passes for the family from The Silo at Hunt Farm.

This self-paced scavenger hunt, tests participants’ knowledge of the town or introduces those from neighboring towns to the sights and sounds of this community.

To register, participants make a $10 donation at housatonichabitat.org/donate and receive an email with map and clues.

Said Dan Silva, director of security and chief information security officer at Union Savings Bank, the hunt’s presenting sponsor, “Housatonic Habitat for Humanity is truly dedicated to making a meaningful difference in the lives of our neighbors. We are honored to support this entertaining, family-fun New Milford scavenger hunt fundraiser that will help Habitat continue it’s mission of community revitalization in the region.”
