All banding this fall will take place at a new site located along Hartley Wood and the field edge, 300 yards NW of the Arboretum’s Overlook Pavilion in the H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens. All sessions are held from 7:00 a.m. until approximately 11:00 a.m. until October 4. Beginning on October 4, the sessions will be held from 7:30 a.m. until approximately 11:00 a.m. Precipitation or constant winds above 15 mph will result in cancellation.
The H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens are located near the intersection of Park Avenue and Bigler Road. Participants should meet at the Overlook Pavilion in the gardens.
