Volunteers must be prepared to live for weeks at a time at island duty stations. Stockton Island consists of running water, a propane heater, a refrigerator, and a small 2-burner stove for cooking. Volunteers are to bring their own food supplies. Volunteers should keep their schedules flexible and always bring extra supplies, in case of weather-related transportation delays. Volunteers may have to find housing in the local community which can be difficult to secure and expensive if there is a weather-related delay. Self-sufficiency is a must. Volunteers must be willing to share housing with rangers, researchers, or maintenance staff. Pets are not allowed.
