Abstract

The study aimed at how intergenerational learning can be utilized as eco-literacy approach for preservation of endangered trees in Onicha Igboeze, Ebonyi State. Three research objectives and three research questions guided the study. The study was a qualitative research and it adopted narrative inquiry design. The population of the study is forty-one (41) community chieftains and all were sampled for the study. The instrument used for data collection was interview schedule. Data analysis was carried out by transcribing voices obtained from audio-recording into text-based format. Findings reveal that traditionally, tree planting is rooted in the traditional belief system of the people; that respondents were of the view that disappearance of tree is basically due to modernity, western religion; and that the respondents are not adequately environmentally literate. Based on the findings, the researcher recommended that awareness of replanting of trees should be intensified; and that government and other stake holders in the environment should intensify efforts toward provision of eco-literacy programme that is based on intergenerational learning approach at community level.
