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 just want to say a huge THANK YOU! for the way you helped me with my first tag. I submitted my first design a few days ago and it obviously had a lot of problems, but you guys worked on it and made it so it can go into production. I was sure you will reject it first hand but instead you put so much time into it to make it work - I don't know how to thank you. You guys are awesome! Thank you so much!"

"Once we decided to make our first Pathtag, I couldn't submit the design quickly enough. We were so excited to have our own personal Pathtag signature item. We definitely weren't disappointed, and were amazed how fantastic the tag turned out! I am looking forward to making another tag soon. These little guys are sooooo addictive! :-)"

"I was introduced to Pathtags by my mother and father and even more at The Midwest Geobash of 2009. I had a set of two tags made for my past Hazard--Perry County Tour IV Weekend Geocaching Event and sold some of my tags to other geocachers in my area as well as in other places of the United States and other countries and then began trading them here on pathtags.com. I enjoy and have enjoyed trading my tags with several collectors of tags in the US as well as in other countries. My wife daughter and I have been trading with several collectors on here and have worked on getting a design made for each one of us. We will be ordering them and will want to trade them real soon thanks to Tekkguy for the designs. I love pathtags. I almost like them better than coins and have enjoyed every minute of collecting them and trading them."
