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 love the special enamels that are available, and really like how our Stormtrooper Halloween tag turned out using them! Our tag has both translucent and glow colors. The translucent colors really add depth to the tag design, and they can be added at any time. The glow colors are a fun element... just shine a light on them and then turn out the lights. Very cool!"

"This is my son's tag and he asked me everyday when his Trailwolf tag would be here. He loves the tags. The detail is great and he carries it everywhere. "


"We have only been making pathtags for about a year and have nothing but good to say about the whole process. These are genuine pieces of art and capture exactly what we are about. The design partners and the whole pathtag team deserve kudos for the easy process from inception to finished goods. These little gems have made a ton of freinds for us as well. Great job everyone!"


"I'm always amazed when I get a new order of Pathtags but you really blew me away with this one! I can't believe the amazing amount of detail these little tags have! You have an awesome product and great customer support! I'm a total Pathtag addict and will definitely be ordering more!"


"Our group (Escapees GeoCachers) recently received our first tags. We LOVE them and are very excited to be sharing them with others. The workmanship is top notch and the colors are vibrant. We look forward to planning tags that commemorate our activities as both cachers and Rv'ers. Thanks so much!"


"This was my first pathtag design and was not sure what to expect from my creation, but the tags came out better than I expected :)"


"When glitter became available, I knew I wanted to do a very cheery tag. The design came together easily for me, and the rainbow glitter was the 'cherry on top'! I love my 'Just Cheery' tag!"


"I received my very first Pathtag today and I am just thrilled! Your staff was exceptional in working with me to get the design just right before it went in to production and I received my tag less than 4 weeks after having submitted the final blueprint. I couldn't be happier and have two others in production right now that I can't wait to receive!"


"We just received our first pathtag, I must say we are very happy indeed. The detail is amazing. Our design came about from a road way sign, discovered while away on the October long weekend event (We didn't start the fire) and a big thank you goes out to The Parrots for help with the design."

"We got our Benny tag in the mail today, and he's better than we'd hoped, a real cutie. So now Benny has come out so well, watch for the rest of the gang :) We love all the tags we have had made so far, they are an outstanding product. cheers Gayle & Mark"
