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."

"Darren had told me all about these on the geotalk australia podcast. I never actually got to see one for myself until the Oz Mega event in Wagga Wagga on the Easter weekend. I had some on order, but never got them in time to trade at the event and I got them today. The service was fast and excellent, even though I am an Impatient man. I love them... simple and plain. and with a vanity serial number that I am so proud of and that you will never get to see unless you trade with me. TFTT."



"Kia Ora. Really happy with my first tag. Even though I am not going to order my second tag just yet - I have already started thinking of what it will be. Even my teenage sons were impressed!! Also extremely appreciative of the people who frequent the forums for their helpful advice. Arohanui."

"The amount of intricate detail possible in these little treasures is truly amazing. I always await each new design with finger-twitching anticipation. My sixth design and I still can't make it into the house to open the envelope. This one made it as far as the front steps and I just couldn't take the suspense anymore! The communication on this VERY detailed tag was consistent and detailed. I LOVE working with the pathtags team....almost as much as when I put this tag into the hands of someone who has never seen a pathtag before! Ah, yes.....I'm an addict! And proud of it!"

"When I found my first Pathtag in a cache I didn't know what it was, but soon found out by going to pathtags.com. After seeing the amazing tags produced, I decided to have my own made, and your production staff did an amazing job with all the detail. I am so pleased with the final Pathtag. I know this will not be my only Pathtag."

"I had this tag made in honour of my late father, who was an artist of abstract, colourful paintings. It is amazing how the pathtag colours match his last painting completely! I am so glad to have this tag to give out to family and to leave in caches."

"After attending the Mega event in Wagga Wagga, and seeing all the action of people swapping tag We wanted in on the action after advice from other teams we got home and I drew my cat Kitty and my Husband Hanseeka designed the tag . Now it is made I love it and was very happy with the service thanks."

"My sister sent me my tags for my birthday gift! I just made my first trade today and have nine pending! This is a fun project. The art work and creative tags and stories are so interesting. I have placed two of my lovely star giraffes in caches, one celebrating my 50th find. Thank you for a new obsession!"
