In its development, people adapt in the form of custom norms, cultural values, and environmental management activities. Local people who live side by side with nature have knowledge passed down from generation to generation about how to fulfill the necessities of life without destructing nature so traditional local wisdom is very profitable in maintaining the environment and preventing the occurrence of environmental damage. With the advancement of technology and the needs of society has led to the loss of local wisdom that causes barren forests and automatically turns off the springs, in addition to the river environment becomes dirty and not awake.
