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."

"Just received our first pathtag today, Rick at TattoinDesigns did a phenomenal job in the design. I am so looking forward to sharing this with my cousin "LoonyLori" on our trip to NM this March. She will be so surprised. I am not looking to trade any at this time."

"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."

"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...)!"

"WOW!!! I just got my tags today. Even though the tag is simple overall, the quality and color are wonderful. I can't wait to start on my next design and make another order."

"What do you design for your very first Pathtag? I decided to dedicate this, my signature piece, to my dad and three uncles who worked for and retired from Lockheed. My dad's first and favorite plane was the P38. The mountains represent where our home became after his retirement, and the Lockheed Martin star shines in the background. My designer captured it perfectly. I love it and now love learning to trade. Yeah, trading and designing.....a whole new life ......."

"When we got our "George William" tag last week Mark was blown away. Everyone he's shown it to, or given it to are amazed. We are talking non taggers here, we have donated some to be sold in the Gift Shop at Cobby to help towards the fund raising at the Museum. We are ever so grateful for the fantastic design work done by Mrs. CCT. Cheers Gayle & Mark"
