Pacific Lamprey Challenge

When the US Fish and Wildlife Department wanted to create a challenge cache series to educate the public about the Pacific Lamprey, they wanted to give participants something to remember the experience by.  They were looking for a gift that would be meaningful to Geocachers, but which is available on a budget.  They selected Pathtags!

The only way to get their beautiful tag is by completeing the cache series, located just Southwest of Olympia, Washington.

Here are all six mystery cache sites:
 
The overall goals of this program are:
  • Educate the public about the Pacific Lamprey
  • Educate the public about the Chehalis River Basin and the partners working to conserve/restore it.
  • Connect People With Nature via geocaching

Walton Robotics FIRST Team 2974 Pathtag

FIRST is a nonprofit organization founded by famed inventor Dean Kamen to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers among young people. The vehicle for making this happen is a program of competitive robotics tournaments for children as young as Kindergarten through high school.

In 2013, Walton Robotics Team 2974 decided to do something special to leave a lasting impression on the people they "crossed paths with" at their competition.  They created a Pathtag to give to other attendees! 

Lisa Malice, one of the team's mentors, said "The pathtags were a big hit with the students because it was a unique give-away and because of the creative approach to spreading our message. Geocachers I met loved it, but the muggle families I talked with were really intrigued! We are starting to see log ins pop up on our tag map, including the ones I sent to Australia and Oregon to collectors who agreed to place them in geocaches."

"When glitter became available, I knew I wanted to do a very cheery tag. The design came together easily for me, and the rainbow glitter was the 'cherry on top'! I love my 'Just Cheery' tag!"

"I am so excited to get my first tags.....I have been collecting them and cannot wait to have one of my own.....thanks to kyndrid for the design....my husband says it looks just like me especially the poked out lower lip and the wandering eyes.....that look in all directions for the cache"



"I had this tag made in honour of my late father, who was an artist of abstract, colourful paintings. It is amazing how the pathtag colours match his last painting completely! I am so glad to have this tag to give out to family and to leave in caches."

"This is our first tag and when it came in we could not believe how perfect it turned out! It is exactly what we ordered it arrived exactly on time and they are awesome! We can not wait until we run into our local cachers so that we can start passing them out; if it wasn't raining right now I would go out and drop a few in some caches right now. Thank you so much everything was handled so perfectly and delivered exactly as promised. I am already thinking of what our next design will be... -cuckootown-"

"I just love all the color and detail that explode off these tiny bits of metal. One of the many great things about these tags are the reactions people submit when they find your tag in a cache. The life of a Pathtag doesn't end when they get shipped! I enjoy the trades and the excitement shared when someone discovers a tag. Thank you for your continued amazing work, attention to detail and the system that keeps the Pathtag community alive."

"The peeps at Pathtags are probably the best peeps in the world! They will go out of their way to make sure you get a wonderful product! They should be very proud! I'm a superman fanatic and have been since I was a little girl watching the show in black and white with my dad so this tag is and will always be my favorite! Detail is stunning and just an all around classy tag! Keep up the awesome work! "

"I had this tag made to give away to friends whilst overseas. It was a huge hit. (Most of them use it as a tag to unlock shopping trolleys.) Thanks for another great job!"

"Coming home from work, there was a package on the doorstep, my own PathTags (yeah!!). I was astonished, they are real "gems"!. Great work, even got them in less than 4 weeks, so I can take them to show off on coming events. Tim, thanks for designing this for your me. "



"I really love that a lot of the details were able to come through on this beautiful tag. I was a little reluctant to try this design, but I am sure glad I did. It came out wonderful. Thanks!"

"This is my first tag and when it came I was very happy with the quality and craftmenship. I made the lettering a little small but the detail still makes it readable. The pathtag community is also one of the helpful and kind group I have ever run across. THANKS to all of the pathtag folks and community "
