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."

"This is really NOT an inquiry but a comment. In today's mail, I received my latest pathtag, number 7780 and just love it. It is the best one I have to date. I want to thank you for your quick service and fast turnaround especially during this time of year. I will proudly "sprinkle" my new tags wherever I venture. Once again, thanks so much and I will be ordering more."

RIMROCK



"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."

Strapped-4-Cache



"An awesome experience on our first Pathtag. We were looking for a reasonably priced signature item for our team, and this Pathtag is perfect. The thing about this experience that has been above and beyond is that you can also trade with people all over the world. We're hooked on it now and have a good start on our collection."

GeoDc and Linda



"Our quest for an item of signature swag drew us to pathtags.com. Design by J and J quickly and enthusiastically translated our ideas into a great design. From blueprint approval to receipt of our tags took less than a month, and the resultant tag exceeded our expectations. Trading has been a blast. Thanks to everyone for a fantastic experience. Cache Is King!"

"This tag turned out perfect! I graduated from Shawnee State, affectionately known as "Floodwall Tech". I'm really please with the tag!"

"This is my first glitter tag and I am just rapt with the fantastic job the factory has done! It is such a simple design that I wasn't sure how it would look, but I am really happy with how it has turned out. Thanks once again!"

"A few months ago, I found a Pathtag in a cache. This was the first time I had ever seen one. Two month later, my first tag arrived in the mail. Now, I'm hooked. I can't say enough great things about the whole Pathtag process. I recently received my very first tag, and it is incredible. A big thank you goes out to the design team, Madonna (the artist), and yesterways (whose tag I found in a cache) who introduced me to Pathtags. "

Kozmaniac22



"This tag turned out better than I expected. I wanted a tag to give to those I want to thank. I'll leave it with the tip at restaurants, give it to the store clerk, the mail carrier, event hosts, and of course my favorite traders. I hope they like it as much as I do. Thanks!!!"
