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 my third tag design and I am totally amazed at how it turned out. By far this is my most favorite looking tag. I am so glad I discovered Pathtags when I did."

Sparticus06



"I really thought I had asked for the impossible with my latest tag. The detail and colors were breathtaking; would the real thing be the same? They were even better! The glitter jumps off the tag and electrifies all the tiny details and motion going on! How you manage, time and time again to create such detail in such a tiny space....well.....WOW! The tag was designed by one of your aspiring partners....Flash Tags....and I am ecstatic at what she created and you brought to life! Thank you. "

"I just ripped open my pathtags order and I LOVE THEM. They are even better than I had imagined. Just one suggestion... when mailing new ones out include a reorder form because when people see how nice they are... THEY WILL ALL WANT TO ORDER MORE RIGHT AWAY! I can't tell you how happy I am with the quality, colors, design... EVERYTHING! Thanks so much."

"WOO HOO! I got my tags over a week earlier than the earliest promised date they gave me. I couldn't be HAPPIER with the way it turned out. What a FUN new hobby to complement geocaching! THANKS pathtags.com!!!"

Curious Georger



"I was introduced to Pathtags by my mother and father and even more at The Midwest Geobash of 2009. I had a set of two tags made for my past Hazard--Perry County Tour IV Weekend Geocaching Event and sold some of my tags to other geocachers in my area as well as in other places of the United States and other countries and then began trading them here on pathtags.com. I enjoy and have enjoyed trading my tags with several collectors of tags in the US as well as in other countries. My wife daughter and I have been trading with several collectors on here and have worked on getting a design made for each one of us. We will be ordering them and will want to trade them real soon thanks to Tekkguy for the designs. I love pathtags. I almost like them better than coins and have enjoyed every minute of collecting them and trading them."

"Just wanted to say that this pathtag turned out very well. Being our first pathtag, the details needed to be just right. After a few iterations of blueprinting and redesigning, the blueprint was accepted and then we waited for it to be produced. When we got them in the mail we were shocked on just how awesome they turned out. Way better than expected. The fine details were amazing. We love our first tag. Thanks for making a signature item that is both affordable and detailed. This was money well spent. "

"Being new to Geocaching - we weren't too sure what to do when we first discovered a Pathtag - but we soon learned and found a new hobby as well. It is so much fun to find a new one and see where it came from and learn about the owners. I decided to order one for my husband's birthday (he is hard to buy for), so I contacted one of the designers that you have listed, and she helped me with this wonderful design. I think the glitter really adds to it. Luckily, the tags arrived on Saturday and Sunday was his Birthday - so they came in just in time to give them to him. We have had a large amount of interest in them since I put them on the site Saturday night. Thanks for offering this fun way of adding to our Geocaching. We will be dropping them off in some special caches as we go along."

"My Rock Band Club tag arrived today. It looks awesome! It turned out even better than I thought it would, especially the face. I approved the first blueprint I was sent. This one was very smooth going. Great job pathtag.com!"
