"RV's" are volunteers who provide their own "homes" (usually in the form or some sort of recreational vehicle, ranging from a fifth wheel with slides to a pop-up camper or a van). The agency (or host) provides a variety of support amenities, usually including a pad with septic, water, and electricity hook-ups. The volunteers set up "housing-keeping" on the refuge or hatchery for a pre-determined length of time and contribute a predetermined number of hours of volunteer service each week.
Check out the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Resident Volunteer Opportunities page to dicover what refuges and hatcheries have resident program!
