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 tag near my house a few months ago and thought it was a tiny geocoin. I got an e-mail from the owner explaining what these tags were all about. I've been hooked ever since! My first design turned out amazing, and I already have ideas for my next two. Can't wait!"


"Wow!! My flower tag really came out awesome! After sending it back several times, I was afraid it wasn't going to come out right. But I was wrong! It came out great! Thank you so much for all your hard work!"


"I can't tell you how happy I am with my set of travel pathtags. They are very special souvenirs of some great journeys I have been fortunate to take, and when I look at them I am flooded with wonderful memories! Thank you for taking Pathman's fabulous designs and bringing them to life. "

Stamp's Retired Tags

"What a great surprise in the mail today. My third pathtag. You guys rock on the production side. It seems like I just ordered it last week. Thanks"


"I had wanted a tag since I had heard about them. The staff at PathTags were very helpful. I love my tag and it's exactly as I designed it."


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


"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!!!"


"Back in May, I designed my pathtag while deployed to Iraq. Two days ago when I got home, I saw my tag in person for the very first time. Suffice to say I was very pleased with how it turned out, so thanks for your quality work in minting it. Now I have to get cracking on fulfilling a number of trade requests... CT"


"I just received my first set of 200 pathtags and they're beautiful. I have already ordered a refill for another 200 with a different background, and I submitted a third order with a totally new design. Talk about addictive, and I haven't even given the first pathtag away or even traded one yet. The tags look great, the service has been first class, and the customer support is awesome. You've got me hooked!"


"We spent so much time worrying about how this was going to look. Completely unnecessary as the path tags look great. Amazed at the amount of detail on such a small space. Now I wish we would have ordered a lot more of them. Thanks. J & K"
