Abstract

Environmental preservation must be a social movement involving the community. This social movement must foster community social capital. Tlogoweru village developed an owl as a way to fight rat pests that attack rice fields, so the harvest is greatly reduced. After using an owl or commonly called “a wuk manuk” , then rat pests can be overcome. Previously the eradication of rat pests used poisons, while the village of Pluneng changed the gutters that were once very dirty and dirty now into gutters that are used to raise koi fish, as a result, the community became reluctant to dispose of garbage or pollute gutters. How environmental conservation is carried out in the Javanese countryside in general and the villages of Tlogoweru and Pluneng in specific, And exploiting social capital about environmental preservation in the Javanese countryside.
