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."

"I love my poker chip tag! Thank you very much for all your hard work! "


"I have had so many people want to trade this tag. Thanks goes to the designer Gayle who helped me and to the people who created my first signature tag.This tag is so special, it turned out exactly the way it was planned. "


"Thank you so very much to Pathtags and the designer of the tag, Sunset Tags. The wonderful art of the tag is incredible. This tag is so much better than we had expected. We had fast service from both Pathtags and Sunset Tags. The detail of the work is awesome, and we are proud to leave this signature tag in the geocaches we find. "


"My first tag was a personal tag with my own Icelandic horse Sina. Really enjoyed the outcome. It seemed fun to prepare a xmas tag for my family and to drop in caches. The design came out beautifully, only problem was I only had ordered 50! I forgot about the online trading community and the busy trading for xmas tags."


"Just got mine today and they are awesome! Almost all of them are spoken for and I haven't even made it to Geobash yet! The 2nd design is in the works as we speak. Thanks for a great product!"


"Once we decided to make our first Pathtag, I couldn't submit the design quickly enough. We were so excited to have our own personal Pathtag signature item. We definitely weren't disappointed, and were amazed how fantastic the tag turned out! I am looking forward to making another tag soon. These little guys are sooooo addictive! :-)"
