Human resources are the primary factor in watershed management, so the presence of local wisdom and social capital are important components in conservation efforts. This research aims to describe the revitalization of local wisdom and social capital in conservation. The research was conducted in the upstream watershed region of the Solo River, in Wonogiri Regency, which includes Gemawang Village in Ngadirojo District, Sambirejo Village in Jatisrono District, Pingkuk Village in Jatiroto District, Sukoboyo Village in Slogohimo District, and Sembukan Village in Sidoharjo District. The research used a qualitative method with a phenomenological approach to investigate developing social phenomena. Data were collected from in-depth interviews with informants who were selected through purposive sampling, including village officials, religious leaders, community leaders, and farmers. The research results show that the revitalization of local wisdom and social capital is implemented through community empowerment, developing community participation, establishing a cooperation network for all stakeholders from the government, corporations, and the community, and providing extension, mentoring, and training in the utilization and conservation of the natural resources of the watershed region.
