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 found my first PathTag in Sept 2007, but didn't have one of my own made until May 2009. In the past year I have experienced the joy of creating my own PathTags and collecting them 8 times now. I had an idea for a tag design for the Pern Club on the PathTags Forums. With an excellent artwork by TX Dreamweaver and the great work by the PathTags blueprinters my Pern tag was born. I had concerns about it's producibility given the many small details in the design. When I received my tags I couldn't be more pleased. They look fantastic. I'm working on the design for my next tag now. Stay tuned. . ."

"I just wanted to write you today and let you now how THRILLED I am about my pathtags. They look totally amazing and even better than i had pictured. I just got them in not 3 minutes ago and i swear i did a little dance when i saw how great they turned out. So satisfied, thank you so much! Even the packaging and the inclusion of the keychain clip ring is wonderful."

"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. "

"When I found my first pathtag I moved it to another geocache not knowing what I had found. After learning more about them, I found another a few months later and I kept it. Then another few months went by and I had the priviledge of meeting Jellyfish and trippy1976 at an event, within minutes I was hooked! Ed and Mike not only were able to answer my questions, they gave me a few tags to help fuel the desire to create, gift and trade my own. I've since created 2 tags with 2 more planned for the near future, with more to follow. Another pathtag addict is born, thanks for helping with the addiction! ~Lion "

"Got my first Pathtag. It is a signature tag of my avatar on my profile. I think it turned out awesome. It really looks much better than I had dreamed. Thanks...couldn't have had a better design. Exceeds all my expectations!"

"Este es mi primero, y estoy realmente contento del trabajo qiue habeis realizado, gracias!!"



"Received my tags today. Wasn't sure how they would turn out will lots of detail but they are way above my expectations. We even had the pirate logo put on the back. We have had many requests for trades even before they arrived. Thanks Lee from GVSU4MSU for helping with the design."
