The local wisdoms in Kendal Ngisor play a role in preserving environmental sustainability, even in certain cases they include myths, rituals and good advice that are capable of governing the community in such a way as to the environment. The objectives of this research are to study the forms of local wisdom and their influence in preserving the environment sustainability in Kendal Ngisor. This research uses qualitative approach with triangulation data analysis techniques. The results of this research indicate that the community of Kendal Ngisor develops several local wisdoms in the forms of nyadran kali, nyadran gunung, and sedekah bumi. The inheritance of local wisdom in the area is done through informal education. Nyadran Kali is the community’s effort to maintain the quality and quantity of springs through clean sources and protection of green areas around the springs. Nyadran Gunung plays a role in maintaining the ecological function of the Kelir mountain and Sedekah Bumi is an expression of gratitude for the abundant harvest through traditional activities.
