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."

"The weeks prior to receiving my tags went by far too slowly, but when they arrived I realized they were definitely worth waiting for! They are even better than I'd anticipated! Thank you so much for the time and care you put into them, as well as for answering my questions. "


"I couldn't be happier with my Greatest Inventions tag. The details they were able to retain in this printing press design are unbelievable! Thank you so much!! "


"I LOVE how this tag came out! The red lettering looks just like I wanted it to, and the white chainsaw seems to just pop out! This is the most detailed tag I've submitted, and it works very well for the dark atmosphere I wanted. "

"The peeps at Pathtags are probably the best peeps in the world! They will go out of their way to make sure you get a wonderful product! They should be very proud! I'm a superman fanatic and have been since I was a little girl watching the show in black and white with my dad so this tag is and will always be my favorite! Detail is stunning and just an all around classy tag! Keep up the awesome work! "

"I've received today my tags and..... they are incredible. It was my first design and I was worried because the images are too small but when I've seen them I've realized how perfect the little shapes are. Great work. Thank you very much."


"Amazing tag again... I can not believe the quality and workmanship of these tags. Received them Yesterday in the mail and can`t wait to start sending them out to the Chess club members.Thank You Lee for designing another great tag,and Thank You Pathtag for the excellent quality"


"I started geocaching only about 4 1/2 months ago, and went to my first event when I only had 2 finds under my belt. I met a lot of nice people there, one of whom had brought his collection of over 300 pathtags. Of course I was curious about these little pieces of art, and asked to take a look at his collection. Right then, I just knew that I had to have my own! Later the same evening, I was given a signature tag by the tag's owner, and that only confirmed my desire to get my own! I resisted the temptation to hastily design my pathtag, but within 2 months I had placed an order. The blueprint confirmation process was a bit problematic for me, but now that my tags are here, I am absolutely thrilled with them! I'm so proud of the way they turned out, and am enjoying face-to-face trading with geocaching friends, and a little bit of trading through the mail so far. I can tell already that I will have to come up another design or 2 (or 3, or 4...)!"


"I am in awe of the wonderful job done in making this pathtag. This was my 5th design (2 for me, 2 for my wife, and 1 for my daughter), and I am always delighted at how well pathtags.com's blueprinting and production department make every detail stand out. I know I will be designing many more in the future."
