Institutions and Institutional Lands

Institutions include the state-owned—schools, clinics, day care centers, barangay/ municipal halls, public markets and the privately owned such as churches, private schools etc. Some of the state-owned institutions are built on lands donated by concerned private citizens.

B. Forest Resource Management and Conservation

It is a common knowledge that forests (kakaiwan/kaheykeyuwan) are one of the vital resources of a community as source of lumber, food, fresh water and air and such other human needs. However, not all communities have well-conserved forests. In the Cordillera alone, although some communities have indigenous natural resource management systems, certain tribes travel from one place to another as they practice the kaingin, one of the less environmentally friendly methods of farming

Kapangan is home to certain wildlife species. It is however one of the concerns of the locals since these animals are in danger of disappearing. Among these are cloud rats, bowet (Philippine fox), sapoki or motit (a species of squirrel) and various species of lizards (some are edible such as thebaniyas). There are also fowls such as sabag (wild chicken), martinis, owl, woodpecker, ospug, serpent eagle, hornbill, herons, Philippine turtledove, kingfisher, and golden ground thrush.
