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 I found my first pathtag I moved it to another geocache not knowing what I had found. After learning more about them, I found another a few months later and I kept it. Then another few months went by and I had the priviledge of meeting Jellyfish and trippy1976 at an event, within minutes I was hooked! Ed and Mike not only were able to answer my questions, they gave me a few tags to help fuel the desire to create, gift and trade my own. I've since created 2 tags with 2 more planned for the near future, with more to follow. Another pathtag addict is born, thanks for helping with the addiction! ~Lion "

"Wow! We could not believe how good our 1st Pathtag came out! We are fully addicted now & got to trade them at GeoWoodstock VIII in Seattle! We went thru 200 already and have placed a reorder! We plan on order more different tags soon!"

"I brought up my Japanese Manhole Series on the forums just to see if there was an interest. WHOA!! I wasn't ready for all the Kudos and WANTS I received. I've got the first two in for production and 3 more ready to go! Getting initial feedback from my peers was an inspiration and motivator to get my series in the works! As Fakk2 put it, "A manhole cover is nothing but a pathtag on steroids!" THANK YOU one and all!"

"Tags arrived yesterday and they far exceed my expectations. Absolutely beautiful job. I designed these as a gift for my daughter and son-in-law and they were thrilled. Thanks, Pathtags."



"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!"

"Kia Ora. Really happy with my first tag. Even though I am not going to order my second tag just yet - I have already started thinking of what it will be. Even my teenage sons were impressed!! Also extremely appreciative of the people who frequent the forums for their helpful advice. Arohanui."

"ROCKY GLEN GROMMETS received their first of two tags in the mail today and they are wicked! Midnightgothicangel has done an amazing job - so good in fact that we've just ordered another 4 designs she's created for us. The Groms are going to be SO excited when they get home from school. Bob Grom is a member of our family at RGG (we picked him up out of a cache on the Eyre Peninsula (Australia))"

"I am just amazed at the response to my first tag. It is AMAZING to me that all the folks that I have traded with here have traded honestly and promptly. What a great group of people to trade tags with. I am not hooked on this Pathtag thing and am looking forward to making a second tag. Kudos to the Pathtag Community!!"
