PROTECTED AREAS
Infanta Watershed Forest Reserve

The 384-hectare Infanta Watershed Forest Reserve in barangay Cawayan and barangays Gumian and Magsaysay, Infanta, Quezon is a tropical rainforest with a bounty of dipterocarp species like red and white Lauan, Tanguile, Apitong, Malaruhat, Balobo, Rattan and Anabiong.

Local species of wild pig, snakes, deer, lizards, monkeys, bats and kalaw also abound in the area.

Since it is only one kilometer away from the national highway and two kilometers away from Rizal town proper, it is fairly easy to reach the area using a variety of means -- on horseback, car or even public transport.

Nature trippers often enjoy the lack of recreational facilities in the area to experience the beauty of nature and trek to the Talon Waterfalls near barangay Cawayan, in Real Quezon.

The weather follows the same pattern as most of the country with a distinct dry season and a pronounced rainy season.

The HTPL is usually used for commercial and reservation areas. One-fourth of the area is composed of recreation and research facilities while the rest are for reservation and a mini-forest for important wildlife species of flora and fauna.
