All banding takes place at the Air Quality Learning and Demonstration Center (Air Quality Site) in Big Hollow. The Air Quality Site is located adjacent to the Bellefonte Central Rail Trail in Big Hollow, approximately 0.5 mile NW of the H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens. Banding headquarters is located in the permanent pavilion located at the site (40 °48’39.34”N and 77 ° 52’ 38.25”W).
