The protected area extends on the Lucan side of Monte Pollino, inside the National Park. It constitutes one of the last wrecks of the mixed formations of beech and silver fir which in the past recurred many Apennine areas.
Inside the reserve there is a small pond (Lago dErba), where plants typical of the wetlands live, visible only in particular moments since the water level is very variable.
The importance of the site is linked to the presence of silver fir, which, according to some scholars, would belong to an Apennine variety different from that present in Northern Italy. The Rubbio Reserve is one of the few sites where white labete, in the past very widespread also along the Apennines, is found in its spontaneous state. It constitutes the ideal environment for the life and reproduction of different species of birds, so much so that it has been classified as an SPA (special protection area) due to the presence of a fauna of significant naturalistic interest, such as the peregrine falcon, the red kite and the black woodpecker. Among the mammals, you can meet the wolf, the lizard, the wild cat and the marten.
