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 found my first Pathtag in 2009 and did not know what it was. I just gave them away or placed them in other caches. Once I realized that you could trade and collect them with Geocachers around the world I was hooked. This is my first tag, Designed by Dark Star and limited to 100. It is still undergoing revisions, but I know it will turn out awesome. Team Low Tech is a iPhone(3G/S) Geocaching group with active members in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. "

"I got my tag about the time I was expecting it and was really impressed with how it looks. I can't wait to start trading. "

T-Hunter



"What an awesome finished product! The tag just blew me away when I opened the package I received in the mail. This tag was kept in mind as sort of an heirloom. Not only will I be trading and dropping in caches, Ill be giving these to my family members with pride. Beautiful tags. I might have to do a refill!"

"These are our first pathtags and they are self designed by us of us.The blueprint looked a little fuzzy,but the tags are very clear,detailed,colorful!The production time was as stated.We love the tags.Our first Pathtag experience has been AWESOME!!!! WE WILL BE BACK FOR MORE!!!"

cateyetech



"The craftsmanship of these Pathtags are absolutely amazing. I'll have to admit, when I would read the stories of others and their Pathtags, I thought maybe they were getting a little overexcited. But now that I received my first Pathtags, I can see why. The whole experience of taking an idea in your mind, making sketches of it, drawing your idea and then submitting it, waiting to see the final blue print, don't even compare to the proud moment you eagerly open up the package from the mail and see the final product. WOW! Now I sound like an overly excited Pathtag owner. Oh well, I like the addiction."

CacheForager



"My very first Pathtags just arrived, and wow, are they great! I used my own artwork, and your blueprinters rendered it so well; the Pathtag turned out beautifully. Now I've got to start sending it out to all the people who traded with me. Best of all, I got them in time for this weekend--I'll have a Pathtag to drop in my 100th cache!"

Quossum



"I just received my first Pathtag. These look great!! They exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with the end product, and will now set about designing more tags."
