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 had this tag made to give away to friends whilst overseas. It was a huge hit. (Most of them use it as a tag to unlock shopping trolleys.) Thanks for another great job!"

"I started having tags made at the beginning of 2009 and this is my 14th of now 16 tags. Needless to say I believe in the quality and consistency of these little buggers. It is a good artful release and the tag community is fantastic and fun to communicate with. This tag was a labor of love from me and the designer. It took a while to get it "right" but the tag team worked with me every inch of the way and the final product is STELLAR ! Much thanks to the tag team at Pathtags and my designer Jamie. You could even say it glows ! "

"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!"

"My Rock Band Club tag arrived today. It looks awesome! It turned out even better than I thought it would, especially the face. I approved the first blueprint I was sent. This one was very smooth going. Great job pathtag.com!"

Dark Star


"Love my first PathTag!! Came out wonderfully. It is amazing just ow small that print can cone out on these things. Shared a couple of my tags with cachers from the UK and Germany. They were not even sure what they were. Hopefully we have spurred some interest and PathTags will be springing up in caches over there. Creation to delivery was pretty quick. Great communication too. I always knew what was going on with my tag. I still have plenty to share. Drop a note and ask to trade!!"



"Received my tags today. Wasn't sure how they would turn out will lots of detail but they are way above my expectations. We even had the pirate logo put on the back. We have had many requests for trades even before they arrived. Thanks Lee from GVSU4MSU for helping with the design."
