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 this tag and never believed it would turn out to be so special. When our friends look at it we alway hear a hugh aaahhhh. "


"This is my first of many pathtags. From beginning to end it was awesome service - right from the great design team (Jamie and Jessie at "DesignbyJ&J") to the great crew at Pathtags. Everyone did their best to give me the finished product I wanted. Being a retired "Coastie" and having my son serving now this is a very special pathtag to me."


"Our first tag, and I am VERY impressed by the quality. My daughter and I share the initials KFE, so that has become our caching signature. When I found the Pathtags website I knew then and there I HAD to make a KFE Pathtag. It is something we will cherish forever and share with our caching friends abroad."


"Just a quick note to let you know that my tags arrived in the mail today -- 2 weeks earlier than originally estimated. This is my first order and I LOVE the tags. Great job. You exceeded my expectations. Thanks."

"This was my first solo design. My thanks to seanwb who helped with the tech stuff. CodeX18"


"WOW!!! I just got my tags today. Even though the tag is simple overall, the quality and color are wonderful. I can't wait to start on my next design and make another order."


"Our group pathtags showed up the other day and they are even better than I imagined. Thanks so much for them. "

"Mahalo for my tags. I wasn't expecting them for about another two weeks. Mahalo nui loa to Emma at midnightgothicangel@yahoo.com for putting together the art work for me. "


"Tags turned out way better than I expected. They are great! "


"I received my new postiegirl Pathtags last week and I am very happy with them. The quality is more amazing than I expected and I would recommend pathtags.com to anyone! Cheers for all the help with my first design - I can't wait to get #2 made up now! My tag isn't for open trading but just to share with my geocaching buddies of which I know, those who already have one are happy with it too ! PG :O)"
