The Conservancy currently has eight meteorological stations on the Island. One each at Parsons' Landing, Silver Peak Trail, Middle Ranch, Cactus Peak, Wild Boar Gully, Whittley's Peak, White's Landing and Dakin Peak. Most stations began collecting data in 2007 or 2008. The stations record temperature, rainfall, relative humidity, incoming solar radiation, and wind speed and direction. Data from these stations assist the Conservancy and visiting researchers in the study of the island’s flora and fauna. They are also used to inform fire management .

These stations were installed by Desert Research Institute and the Catalina Island Conservancy with a grant from the Seaver Institute.

In addition to the Conservancy's stations, NOAA maintains weather stations at the Airport in the Sky and in Avalon.

Recent and historical meteorological data from the stations can be viewed online at the Desert Research Institute or via the links below.
