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."

"We love our new Pathtags. We were a bit wary to try a new type of signature item. But the ease of your ordering process took a lot of the pressure away. The cost was very reasonable and the product is EXCELLENT. We will be showing them off this weekend at a Geocaching event near our hometown. We will be re-ordering soon."


"What a great surprise in the mail today. My third pathtag. You guys rock on the production side. It seems like I just ordered it last week. Thanks"


"This my third tag design and I am totally amazed at how it turned out. By far this is my most favorite looking tag. I am so glad I discovered Pathtags when I did."


"This tag turned out perfect! I graduated from Shawnee State, affectionately known as "Floodwall Tech". I'm really please with the tag!"


"We travel by motorcycle many time when caching. So I have to have a Pathtag for this. We plan to travel to all 50 states on the motor cycle and caching all the way. What fun doing the two things you love."


"Well, after receiving our first tags I was all set and ready with a new design, so off to photoshop I went and came up with a tag for my choppers. I wanted a different border on it, something that related to motorcycles, and so my chain border was born. It turned out fantastic, thanks again Pathtags. I have many more designs ready to submit, but have to wait a bit."


"I have to agree with others here about the craftsmanship of these tags. I'm sure I'm biased, but these are everything I could possibly have hoped for. I had the design for a second tag in hand, and was waiting to see if I was satisfied with the first. I submitted the second design the same day I received the first. I'm now trading some, and leaving my mark in every cache that will hold a Pathtag. :)"


"Got my first Path Tag today and they are great! Ordering was easy and it really didn't take that long."


"This is my first glitter tag and I am just rapt with the fantastic job the factory has done! It is such a simple design that I wasn't sure how it would look, but I am really happy with how it has turned out. Thanks once again!"


"Got the tags in the mail and really liked what I saw. I cant wait for the event that these were designed for but have plenty on hand to do some trading."
