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."

"My very first Pathtags just arrived, and wow, are they great! I used my own artwork, and your blueprinters rendered it so well; the Pathtag turned out beautifully. Now I've got to start sending it out to all the people who traded with me. Best of all, I got them in time for this weekend--I'll have a Pathtag to drop in my 100th cache!"

"When I first found a Pathtag and saw that it didn't cost very much to make my own... I thought... I can make some of my jeep. I take pictures of my jeep all the time and think THAT PICTURE WILL MAKE A GREAT PATHTAG! I now have 3 made of my jeep... and working on a 4th... "

"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)"

"I discovered Pathtags about a year ago, and finally ordered my first Pathtags. I love it. It is the Celtic Knot from Wicks Works Designs. I could not believe that people wanted to trade for my tag within 10 minutes of my putting it up for trade. I am thrilled to know that the tag will span the globe. Sláinte mhath, StoryMel"

"With the closing of our Fire Department we looked at Pathtags.com as a way for our firefighters keep a small piece of history with them. The detail on this tag is some of the best I have seen. It has prompted us to look at a series related to the changes we had had over the past 54 years."

"We got our tag today, ahead of schedule and on my birthday no less. The entire process from design to production was amazing. The tags look better in person that we ever could have imagined. Thanks to webdesignbyjandj for the awesome design. Can't wait to put the next one together!"

"This is my eighth PathTag and the quality of these tags is magnificent.I'm hooked and plan to get many more as time goes by."

LAEd



"I got my initial order of Pathtags today and have to say that I'm both thrilled and impressed. This is a high-quality signature/trade item that doesn't require the significant ca$h outlay necessary to get a coin minted. I look forward to dropping and trading these, and expect to place another order soon."
