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."

"Just got mine today and they are awesome! Almost all of them are spoken for and I haven't even made it to Geobash yet! The 2nd design is in the works as we speak. Thanks for a great product!"


"Deciding which metal plating to use on your Pathtag can have an impact on how the final tag looks. I decided to use Copper on our Vermont tag, and loved how it turned out! I'm so glad that there are different metal plating choices. They also provide an opportunity to order a refill with a differnt look to the tag, by choosing a different metal."

Imperial Walkers

"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!"


"I'm so very happy with my Christmas tags! The glitter looks wonderful. This is a Christmas gift and trade item that I can be quite proud of. I received my order exactly one month after submitting! Thanks again for a quality product!"

TX Diva

"Felix arrived in the post today, this tag has turned out better than we hoped, thanks again for a great trading product. Cheers Gayle & Mark"


"Thanks for a great quality trading coin. Response has been fantastic about the quality of this tag. I am now working on My third tag,this will never end."


"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. :)"


"When I first found a Pathtag and saw that it didn't cost very much to make my own... I thought... I can make some of my jeep. I take pictures of my jeep all the time and think THAT PICTURE WILL MAKE A GREAT PATHTAG! I now have 3 made of my jeep... and working on a 4th... "


"This is our first tag and when it came in we could not believe how perfect it turned out! It is exactly what we ordered it arrived exactly on time and they are awesome! We can not wait until we run into our local cachers so that we can start passing them out; if it wasn't raining right now I would go out and drop a few in some caches right now. Thank you so much everything was handled so perfectly and delivered exactly as promised. I am already thinking of what our next design will be... -cuckootown-"


"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!"
