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."

"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."

"This was our first tag, and we weren't making it easy! We are picky and knew just what we wanted it to be like, just weren't sure how they could do it. They did it though. We were so excited when we finally saw the finished product. They turned out fabulous!"

Boltons



"We got our tag today, ahead of schedule and on my birthday no less. The entire process from design to production was amazing. The tags look better in person that we ever could have imagined. Thanks to webdesignbyjandj for the awesome design. Can't wait to put the next one together!"

"I just got my set of tags today, and they are perfect! I was a little worried about the detail showing up, or the colors being off, or something, but everything looks great. There is a neat contrast between the dolphin with its gray enamel and silver silhouette of the diver, all surrounded by a beautiful sea of translucent blue. I can't help holding and admiring my new tags!"

"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))"

"Rocky Glen Grommets are absolutely delighted with their Curry Quarry Emu - midnightgothicangel and the production team have done a magnificent job - our shipment arrived earlier than we expected and Quarry Emu is already in circulation around the globe!"

"I had toyed with the idea of getting a pathtag for a while but didn't know what kind of design to submit. Then it hit me, why not use the logo I had designed for a stamp I had made to stamp cache logs with. The blueprint looked okay, but the tag itself was better than I had hoped for! Now I think I will add some color to my original and also design one for my daughter."

"I found my first pathtag about 6 months ago and was wow'ed by the quality......but not as Wow'ed as when I got my own.....it is beautiful and such great quality....I can't wait to share them with everyone.....I am so proud of my Caching Crazy tag."

"Came home to find the tags in the mailbox. What an excellent early Christmas gift ay! The tags turned out just awesome as I had expected. I can't wait to start trading as well as repaying some pathtag debts. :-) I will be ordering more very soon I am sure. Thanks for a great job on my tags and thanks to Dark Star for the design help!!!"

"Woohoo...My tags arrived and they look awesome! Its amazing to see the work that goes into making a pathtag. I plan on making a fall and a winter version as well. All though cheap swag is nice for the kids, it's nice to have something affordable for the older kids ;o) thank you for a making geo caching even more fun!"
