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 love all the color and detail that explode off these tiny bits of metal. One of the many great things about these tags are the reactions people submit when they find your tag in a cache. The life of a Pathtag doesn't end when they get shipped! I enjoy the trades and the excitement shared when someone discovers a tag. Thank you for your continued amazing work, attention to detail and the system that keeps the Pathtag community alive."

"ROCKY GLEN GROMMETS received their first shipment of tags today - Grom2 will especially like the Yamaha Blue and Grom1 will love the orange of KTM - whilst we all love the leg that Australia stands on (Yorke Peninsula). Midnightgothicangel has done a great job in helping us with our designs - just ordered another 4 (based on the Curramulka Emu)"

"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!"

"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!!!"

"We have only been making pathtags for about a year and have nothing but good to say about the whole process. These are genuine pieces of art and capture exactly what we are about. The design partners and the whole pathtag team deserve kudos for the easy process from inception to finished goods. These little gems have made a ton of freinds for us as well. Great job everyone!"

"If you would have said in 2007 that I would have pathtags made as a signature coin, I would have said you were off your rocker. ;) My husband found the game of Geocaching in September of 2007, by accident, with the purchase of a GPSr. As we were working different shift schedules, he evenings and I working days...he spent quite a bit of time "nightcaching". I later got more involved after we met some great people who are now great friends. Then pathtags were discovered! When I learned that these were items you could keep, unlike the travel coins, I was hooked! This is our first pathtag and much to my husband's dismay, this may be as bad as my "purse and shoes addictions". Thanks for all the patience in getting this one just right. :) "



"Received our first pathtag, and have to say we were more impressed with the result than we were expecting. These things look so much better than the 2D blueprints! We already have a 2nd tag in production, and a 3rd being designed. Addicting stuff indeed."

"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 was very pleased with how this tag turned out. The snow is glitter and is very subtle. My Clydesdale, Ransom, was the model for this tag. J and J did a great job for us!"
