Geocache Description:

This is the first geocache of a Harry Potter series that I am starting. These caches are dedicated to characters, creatures, and locations from within the Wizarding World. These caches are perfectly normal geocaches but they carry a short story behind them about the Wizarding World. The majority of the information will be coming from the books and where the lore is explained in further detail. 

If you are thinking of place a geocache that pertains to Hedwig the Owl (Harry Potter's Snowy Owl) what better place to put one in Rice University. Within Rice, the owl is considered the University's mascot throughout a variety of sports. At this location within Rice University, there lay a bronze owl of a barn owl after the school's mascot. Nearby the statue there is the Brochstein Pavillion, a great place to have a small meal, drink or chat and the lawns of Rice University.

Hedwig was purchased by Hagrid (the groundskeeper at Hogwarts, the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the UK) in Diagon Alley as a present for Harry Potter's 11th Birthday on his first trip to Diagon Alley. Harry continued to use Hedwig for all of his years at Hogwarts. Hedwig was a highly intelligent owl who would show affection to Harry by nibbling his ears or fingers.
